Normally you should beware the Ides of March, but I guarantee that if you like lemon, you'll love this recipe.
Today's recipe needs a better name. I got the recipe here, which is adapted from someone who adapted it from someone else, etc. Regardless, everyone is calling them Lemon Brownies, or Lemon Cake Bars, and they deserve a good name! I mean, there's nothing brown or chocolatey about them, so we can't call them brownies. And Lemon Blondies isn't really a great name either. And Lemonies sounds weird. These have the taste of Lemon Bars (except better) with the texture and consistency of brownies. So I need your help - make these, and then help me name this recipe!
Whatever they're called (my mom suggested Lemon Heaven Bars), these are amazing. Chloe and I weren't so sure when we finally had all the ingredients in the mixer and it looked pretty lumpy. Just keep beating, and it will eventually turn out creamy like this:
Once baked, it looked like this:
Yes. We ran out of toothpicks and had to use a fork. Whatever. It's still delicious. The glaze was an amazing and inspired addition.
Although it kind of makes it look like a pan full of raw eggs. :) I promise you, this recipe is amazing. These bars are so lemony and so delicious.
I hope you enjoyed Lemon Week as much as we did. I know my stove sure did:
