+1 What is the texture like? BTW, I figured you'd be up to giving the recipe a trial run so that it can now be a TNT recipe!

Alix, look into Dropbox www.dropbox.com. it syncs files between your phone and computer automatically. I love it

GG, I have dropbox! I didn't think it would allow me to post a picture, just a link to a picture that way. I'll look into that.

Andy - 3 big lemons and some of an orange.

CWS - texture is nice and chewy like a brownie. Not the fudgy type of brownie that is sort of goopy in the middle, but like an undercooked cake brownie. Does that make sense to you?

Also, that is WAY too much glaze for the 9x9 pan. I'd do half next time.

Alix, I had to add a utility to my tablet to get it to download the Dropbox files to it, but not my phone. I posted in the support forum about it and Frank helped me.

I'm drooling here. One question, Alix ---- why did you add the baking powder? I know there was no leavening in the recipe, but I wonder how the brownies would turn out without it? Has anyone tried this recipe as written??

I added baking powder because I wanted to lighten the texture a bit. In my two go-to brownie recipes the fudgier one does not have baking powder, the cakier one does. I prefer the cakier texture so I thought I'd toss it in.

Why don't you give it a whirl without and tell us what you think?

When I have a recipe that calls only for the juice of a citrus, I remove the zest and place in the freezer. The juice goes into the recipe. If the recipe calls for only zest, I save the juice and that goes into the freezer. Right now I have more than eight ounces of juice and four of zest. To rehydrate the zest, I place the amount called for in the recipe in about 1/8 cup of hot water. What little juice is left, goes into the recipe. I also keep a four ounce can of frozen lemon and orange juice in my freezer in the event I don't have an orange or lemon on hand.

lemon, lemons, recipe

Calling all lemon lovers! This recipe got added to my "must try this" list today: [URL="http://www.bestyummyrecipes.com/lemony-lemon-brownies/"]Lemony Lemon Brownies Food Recipes[/URL] I found a link for lemon fudge and a copycat of the Olive Garden's lemon cake. I posted the links in the lemon lovers thread. The fudge sounds yummy! 3 stars 1 reviews
