    I discovered your YouTube channel in 2020. These lemon brownies I have made for family and friends and everyone raves about them! I miss you being on YouTube but so grateful you have a web site for me to try more recipes, especially those Polish jelly donuts!

    I just LOVE all of Jenny’s recipes. They are easy to write down as she gives all the information & gives time to get everything on paper. Her recipes are easy & always delicious. Loved her as a Talk Show Host. & absolutely her cooking on you tube.

    I have been searching for an easy lemon dessert to bake that’s also gluten free. I had all the ingredients you needed to bake these so I decided to make a batch. WOW…very delicious! They were the perfect amount of sweet and tart. The only thing I did differently was use full fat sour cream instead of Greek yogurt. Highly recommend!

    Very good, just made these for my son and myself; excellent!!

    Which gluten free baking flour you use?

  8. Calla

    Wow! These Lemon Brownies are GREAT! I have many allergies, including wheat. I can not use most commercially made GF flour mixes or products since the ones I can find include potato starch. I am also allergic to potatoes! I make my own GF flour mix of one third brown rice flour, one third tapioca flour and then one third GF corn starch and then add Xanthan Gum. I mention this as with Covid-19 sometimes we can not find every thing we want and it may be of help to some one who still wishes to bake. Besides, making your own GF flour mix is generally more economic. The amount of Xanthan gum needed various with what one is making. For this Lemon Brownie recipe 1/2 tsp Xanthan gum is what is needed when using a GF flour that does not contain it.

    Thank you Jenny for a recipe that has such great texture and taste and that can be made Gluten Free!

      Thank you….much appreciate your knowledge:)

      Thank you for sharing your GF flour blend. I was recently diagnosed with Celiac so I’m at a loss. I’m so confused about all the gf flours, blends, what flour to use for bread, pizza, baking, etc. Thank you once again.

    I thought you were vegan until this recipe. I read the substitutions, but I may try using a vegan option.

  10. Kay

    What can I use in place of the eggs to make it vegan?

  11. Melanie Sellers

    I have a large bottle of dried lemon zest and wonder if it is something I could use in this recipe? How much dried zest should I use in place of fresh?

    I want to try your lemon brownies. I plan to replace the sugar with ethanol sugar. Would like to use combination or almond and/or coconut flour. Any suggestions?

    Love your website and recipes. Your artisan bread is such a hit. My family and friends love my gifts. I have 2 pots that fit in my oven.. so always make 2 at a time.
