We're calling tnem the 'watergate brownies...'
so recently I was gifted a bag of lemons. Have you noticed the price of lemons?? I love lemons and all things lemony so I began to look for something new to try to bake. Be forewarned, I'm not a baker, don't like it at all but for some reason lately I've been trying to think outside the box. The box...I love it!
I found a recipe for "Lemonies" that sounded great, basically a lemon brownie. I can do that. So I got my ingredients together, dry in one bowl, wet in another, asked hubby to squeeze some lemons for me, still can't to that one handed!
Everything mixed up, in the pan and baking away as directed. Twenty minutes later I pull them out and what the?? I look over the ingredient list again, no not missing anything, all was carefully measured. Went back to the computer to look at the 'after' photo, hmmmm, definitely something wrong here. Mine were flat and dry actually quite pathetic looking. Hers? you know, moist and fluffy.
Now the cover-up. With a nice heavy layer of lemon glaze and some fresh lemon zest and berries and voila. From drab to fab.
what are your weekend plans? I still have lemons to turn into something~~~something. Enjoy
