Lemonade Brownies

These are very addicting. I love anything lemon and these were great! They were easy to put together and I always have powdered Country Time on hand.
Lemonade Brownies


1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup dry lemonade powder

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg, plus 2 yolks

1 tsp vanilla

3/4 cup flour, plus 2 Tbsp

1/4 tsp baking powder


1 cup powdered sugar

2-3 Tbsp prepared lemonade OR juice from one lemon, approx 2-3 Tbsp

1 tsp lemon zest

  1. Preheat oven to 350°
  2. Spray an 8x8 pan with cooking spray, set aside.
  3. Cream butter, sugar and lemonade powder in mixer for about 2 minutes,until light and fluffy.
  4. Add in egg and both yolks and vanilla. Continue mixing until incorporated.
  5. Turn mixer to low and add in flour and baking powder. Stir until combined.
  6. Spread batter into prepared pan.
  7. Bake 15-20 minutes until edges begin to golden and center is JUST set. Do not over bake.
  8. Remove from oven and cool on wire rack.


  1. Is there a way to make them slightly less dense. Mine were really heavy - much heavier than chocolate brownies. Did I do something wrong?

  2. They were more dense than cake like brownies. I guess you could try adding more flour to the batter and see if that helps.
