The Best Lemon Drizzle Blondies Recipe

The Best Lemon Drizzle Blondies

If you’ve been following me for a while now, you will know that I love a bit of cake! Hence why I am currently on a weight journey and halfway through Couch25K haha!! One of my favourite cakes is Lemon Drizzle. I love the tart zing contrast, and I think it makes the perfect summer treat. I’m also partial to a Brownie or Blondie because the gooey, moist texture feels indulgent and a bit luxurious. So, guess what I did? I only made The Best Lemon Drizzle Blondies you’ll ever taste!!

Blondies & Brownies

I have always been obsessed with brownies from a young age. They are gooey, moist chocolate squares of heaven! I will often substitute a brownie recipe in place of a chocolate cake layer because it adds an extra wow factor for sure! A few years ago, I experimented with my fave Brownie recipe and created a vanilla alternative which is now my go-to Blondie recipe. It’s perfect for those days when you want a gooey and delicious cake that isn’t chocolate based!! For the past few months I’ve been craving Lemon Drizzle cake, but I wanted the gooey, rich blondie element too, so I experimented and excuse my own trumpet blowing, but these are the BEST Lemon Drizzle Blondies you will ever taste, and they are so simple to make!!
