A moderately dreamy flavour mixture of creamy white chocolate and zingy lemon, embodied by one severely fudgy trayful of brownies. Yum!


  • 250g white chocolate + 50g for adorning (callets or chopped into small items)
  • 200g unsalted butter, reduce into small chunks
  • 3 giant eggs
  • 200g caster sugar
  • 3 lemons
  • 170g gluten free plain flour ( I used FREEE by Doves Farm)
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Place 250g white chocolate right into a microwave proof medium-sized bowl, with the unsalted butter. Microwave for 30 seconds, depart to face for 30 seconds then stir, then repeat a second and third time or till the chocolate and butter have melted – don’t overheat otherwise you danger splitting the chocolate/getting a really messy microwave! Stir vigourously with a fork or small whisk to mix.
  2. Grease and line a 20cm sq. baking tin with non-stick baking paper. Preheat the oven to 170C (fan).
  3. Crack the eggs into a big mixing bowl, then sift within the caster sugar. Then add the zest of the three lemons. Combine with a fork or wood spoon till well-combined.
  4. Pour the chocolate combination (which ought to have cooled barely by now – heat is okay however guarantee it is not likely scorching, as this will curdle the eggs) into the bowl with the eggs, sugar and lemon zest. Combine instantly till you’ve a thick batter.

The brownie will largely baked, however with a very wobbly part within the centre while you take it out of the oven – that is precisely the way you need it to be for a fudgy centre. For those who choose cakier brownies, bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. As we’re making a fudgy brownie, you will have it to chill absolutely earlier than slicing else it could be smooth and runny within the center. You’ll be able to both depart it at room temperature or, in case you are in a rush, pop it within the fridge as quickly because it has stopped being scorching to hurry up the cooling.
  8. As soon as the brownies have fully cooled, rigorously carry your entire brownie sq. out of the tin (I carry the edges of the baking paper to switch them), and onto a chopping board.
  9. Now to make a lemon and white chocolate ganache to drizzle over the brownies. Add the remaining 50g white chocolate to a small microwaveable bowl and squeeze over 10ml lemon juice (the remaining lemons could be saved within the fridge and used for salad dressings/different recipes). Microwave for 10 seconds, depart to sit down for 30 seconds then stir – if nonetheless thick, microwave for a number of seconds (10 seconds max) and stir once more till easy and shiny. Do not overheat as it would cut up.
  10. Pour the ganache right into a small piping bag or use a spoon to drizzle it over the brownies. Pop within the fridge for quarter-hour to set, then slice into 12 brownies and revel in!
