Lemon Brownies.....

3/4 cup all-purpose flour(maida)
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest
2 tbsp lemon juice

Lemon Glaze:
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 1/2 tsp lemon zest

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (350 degrees F).  Grease an 8-by-8-inch (20cm) baking dish or line it with baking paper

Zest and juice a lemon, set aside.

Add flour, sugar, salt and softened butter to a bowl and beat well until combined. 

In a separate bowl, whisk  eggs, lemon zest and lemon juice. pour into the flour mixture and beat until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes. 

Pour mixture into the baking dish and bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until just starting to turn golden around edges and a toothpick inserted into the center of the brownies comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before glazing. 

When brownies are cooled completely, make the glaze by whisking together all three ingredients. Spread over the brownies with a rubber spatula, cut into bars, and serve! Sprinkle some zest on top of the glaze.
