Lemon Blondies
  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 Tbsp lemon zest
  • 3 Tbsp lemon juice, fresh
Lemon Whipped Cream Frosting

Lemon Blondies
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line an 8x8 or 9x9 square baking pan with non-stick foil (this way you can lift the blondies right out of the pan and cut them). Set aside.
  2. Cream butter until light and fluffy, about 1 minute or so. Add in granulated and brown sugar and beat until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating until well after each addition.
  4. Add in flour, baking powder and salt; mix until well combined.
  5. Mix in vanilla extract, lemon zest and lemon juice.
  6. Spread batter (batter will be thick) evenly in prepared baking pan and bake for 25-26 minutes, or until blondies are lightly golden brown and no longer wet in the center.
  7. Allow to cool.
Lemon Whipped Cream Frosting
  1. With a standing mixer or hand mixer, whip heavy whipping cream and instant pudding (vanilla or white chocolate) until soft peaks begin to form.
  2. Add in lemon zest, lemon juice and powdered sugar. Whip until stiffer peaks form and it has reached the consistency of whipped cream.
  3. Spread over cooled blondies.
  4. Serve immediately and store leftovers in the fridge.
  5. Enjoy!
