5. Place a large sieve over the top of the mixing bowl and add the flour and baking powder. Use a spoon to mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients below. Remove the sieve and mix the wet and dry ingredients together with a spoon.

6. Pour your brownie batter into the prepared baking dish, and use the back of the spatula to spread it evenly into the edges and flat across the top.

Add to the Baking Dish

7. Bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the edges are brownish and the center is set. For fudgy brownies, your baking time will be closer to 22 minutes. For cakier brownies, 25 to 28 minutes will be ideal.


8. Once out of the oven, let them cool to room temperature. Slice the unglazed brownies into 12 squares.

9. Make the glaze by adding the powdered sugar, lemon juice and lemon zest to a small bowl and mixing well to ensure there are no lumps.
