I made these Wednesday for my writing class and they were a big hit! I had intended to add the baking powder, but I forgot, so they were the more dense kind, but they were really good. I may have overbaked them; the top felt a little tough to me, so I poked holes in it with a fork and poured the glaze over that, so the glaze would go into the brownies, like a tres leches cake. I also added 1 tbsp. poppy seeds to make lemon-poppy seed brownies. They were delicious! I will definitely make these again.

If I weren't busy sanding and resealing my butcherblock countertops this weekend, I was planning on making a pan of these. The poppy seeds sound like a great addition.

GG....that looks fantastic!! Definitely going to try this, as I admit to being a lemon lover, almost more than chocolate!

At a guess I would say precision isn't totally essential here. At a guess I'd say one good sized lemon would yield a tablespoon of zest.

I made it with three lemons for the zest and two for the juice. Now I have a naked lemon in the fridge. The result was very lemony.

Squeeze it out and freeze the juice.

There has been a couple of times when I have needed more zest than juice. So that leaves me with a lemon that is skinless. So I just squeeze it and freeze the juice in the cube tray, with only the seeds removed. Because I wasn't squeezing the rind, I got a lot of juice out of it. I have also removed the zest when a recipe calls for the juice alone. I remove that and freeze also.
