Lemonies (Lemony Brownies). Awesome New Music From Lime Cordiale.

Lemonies (Lemony Brownies)

Not quite a lemon bar, not quite a brownie, these little bites of sunshine get the cute name Lemonies. Packed with lemon flavor and topped with a tangy glaze, they are a real sweet treat.

    Reblogged this on Pots, Pans and Proverbs and commented:
    These look so lemony and awesome. I wish I wasn’t so tired, I would be making these tonight. : )

    Really really good found this from pinterest!

    • I’m so glad you liked the recipe. Thank you for letting me know!

      • Shelby says:

        I’m curious do u know the calorie count?

        • I found this page which lists the calorie count as 148 if the lemonies are cut to yield 16 pieces.

          The recipe I made uses 1/4 cup more butter which adds 407 calories and 1/2 cup more of confectioners’ sugar which adds 233 calories. So recalculating, that would add 40 calories to each lemonie for a total of 188 calories for 1/16th of the recipe.

          I serve really small pieces (so that the recipe yields 25 lemonies) so, using the math above, the calorie count for a lemonie would be 120.

          I hope that helps!

    Hi. Is it plain flour? In the UK you have either plain or self raising. Also is it vanilla paste or something else?

  6. CeeCee Singer says:

    Just made this afternoon the batter and glaze tasted delicious but they came out kinda flat. How “high” should they be?

  7. Mapuana says:

    This recipe is a winner I bake it several times a month. Everyone that I bake it for family, friends, customers, neighbors and my boyfriend, they love it and can’t get enought of it. Also, I do use oranges with this recipe and it is the bomb.

  8. Laurel says:

    Recipe is delicious.
    Almost didn’t follow up on the music link in anticipation of being Rickrolled.
    What a pleasant surprise, New fan

    Are these easy to double to bake in a 9×13 pan?

    • I have never tried doubling the recipe for a 9 x 13 inch pan. I found this info (from this site):

      “You should go by the area of the pans.
      8 x 8 x 2 = 128 square inches — double that is 256 square inches
      9 x 13 x 2 = 234 square inches”

      Based on that it looks like it is worth a try to double. You’ll have to let me know how they turn out!

    Okay, I baked these this week and thought I hadn’t cooked them long enough but nope, they were perfect! They are a little flat as you said but the consistency is great! And wow, they are lemony delicious!!! Everyone loved them! I’m baking another pan tomorrow! Thank you for the recipe!

  11. Christy says:

    Love these Lemonies! Have a question about cooking time. First time I made them they were still pretty jiggly in the center at 25 minutes so baked another 5 minutes, then 5 more minutes and just beginning to brown around the edge so I took them out. Once cooled, I realized that the center was not cooked (but my husband ate it anyway). Next time I baked for 23 minutes and started checking – adding 10 minutes, then 5 minutes and still needed 3 minutes more. I’m wondering what the reason might be? Oven is calibrated correctly. Would the size of the eggs make a difference? Whatever the reason – we love these and take them to parties all summer long!

    • Hmmm. I’m not sure what the reason is. I looked around the comments section of the post where I got the recipe and only 1 person out of about 87 commenters had that issue.

      Glad they still tasted good!!

    Come by your site on an late friday afternoon relaxing looking at Pinterest, spotted this pin for the lemoney lemon brownies from Pinterest, got off couch and started baking, I pin a lot and bake little, Thank you, the cake was received very well especially for been Friday and I end up cooking dinner for the family instead of take out. Will be baking this again and hopefully a lot more.

  13. Angela R Buehler says:

    Just made these this morning and they are scrumptious!! They will be a family favorite!!!

  14. kris says:

    I was surprised at how good these were! I was actually looking for a brownie recipe when I found these on Pinterest, and let me just say, all chocolate plans went out the window — these Lemonies really hit the spot!! I love the texture and the bright flavor! I’ll definitely be making these again!

  15. nell says:

    Have you ever tried adding blueberries to these? Sounds intriguing.

  16. Jennifer Konop says:

    Are these able to be made in advance ? How long does the glaze need to “set” ?

  17. is it safe to double recipe?

  18. Ellen says:

    These things look great.

  19. Ashley says:

    I was looking for a Thanksgiving recipe, and I stumbled across this god of a desert! My entire family says it looks AMAZING, and I am desperate to try them! Thank you for making these!!

  20. Margaret says:

    I follow the Trim Healthy Mama lifestyle and used almond flour, xylitol for the sugar ( you need only about 1/2 of what it calls for for the icing), lemon extract because I was out of zest. The flavor was perfect!!!! I was craving lemon. They don’t act like they’re going to stay together, though. They are cooling in the frig. I’ll eat them with a spoon if I have to they are so yummy. Any tips for getting them to hold together??

    • I’ve never baked with a sugar substitute so am not sure how texture is affected. The Lemonies are very pudding like made according to the original directions, but they do hold together. You’ll have to let me know if the refrigeration helped at all. At least they are tasting good for you!

  21. Sheryl says:

    I have searched everywhere for lemon pastry

  22. Joy says:

    I made this recipe with limes and it was even better!

  24. Jeametta says:

    25 minutes in the oven at 350 and I could pour it out like water. I double and triple checked to make sure I followed the recipe exactly. Waiting to see if more time helps. Crossing my fingers.

    • Did they ever set up for you? I had 2 other comments related to this and there was no issue related to oven temperature or egg size. So, I am not really sure why this happened. I hope they finally turned out alright!

  25. Teresa says:

    hi there :) i didnt have my 8×8 pan avail. so went w a 9×5 and i knew would take bit longer but when they finally got done,.just shear lemon joy in my mouth thank you so much!!!

  26. Sue says:

    These smell great, I changed the flour to 1/2 cup almond meal and 1/2 cup whole wheat flour. The sugar I used 1/2 cup coconut sugar and 1/2 cup rapadura cane sugar. The glaze I used the confectioners sugar, but I made about 1/2 the amount. They are great!

    It was a success!
