Hello everyone!

I absolutey love the taste of lemon, and these lemonies are delicious little cakes with a lemon glaze, perfect for a girl’s night or with a cup of coffee, anytime…

Here is the recipe – enjoy!


  • 2/3 cup (85 g) all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup (170 g) regular sugar
  • juice from 1/2 lemon
  • finely grated zest from 1/2 lemon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup (115 g) butter
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt


Bring out everything you need, the butter must be at room temperature.

I used more lemon zest than stated in the list of ingredients (1 lemon instead of 1/2), simply because I just love lemon…

Put the eggs, lemon juice and zest into a bowl.

Whisk until combined.

Put the flour, sugar, salt and butter into a mixing bowl, beat until everything is well blended.

Add the egg mixture.

Beat for another 30 seconds, until everything is well blended.

I use a 4 x 6-inch (10 x 15 cm) pan for this, double the recipe if you’re using a 8 x 12-inch (20 x 30 cm) pan.

Bake in a 350 ˚F (180 ˚C) oven for about 25 minutes.

Fresh from the oven… smells like heaven!

Leave to cool.

Lemon glaze:

  • 1/2 cup (60 g) powdered sugar (I used 1 cup/120 g here to make a thicker layer)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice (I used 2 tablespoons)

Put the powdered sugar into a bowl with the lemon juice and stir until smooth.

Pour over the cooled cake.

Spread out to cover the entire cake, using a knife or a palette knife to help you.

Cut into squares…

…and enjoy!

Mmmmmm, I love lemonies <3

I hope you are tempted to bake something yummy for your loved ones.

Have a wonderful day!

Hugs from me to you.
