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


  • 250g white chocolate + 50g for adorning (callets or chopped into small items)
  • 200g unsalted butter, lower 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, go away 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 picket spoon till well-combined.
  4. Pour the chocolate combination (which ought to have cooled barely by now – heat is okay however guarantee it is probably not scorching, as this may increasingly curdle the eggs) into the bowl with the eggs, sugar and lemon zest. Combine instantly till you’ve gotten a thick batter.
  5. Lastly add the pinch of salt and sift within the gluten free plain flour. Combine very well till the flour has been integrated into the brownie batter.
  6. Now pour the brownie batter into the ready baking tin, then bake on the center shelf of the oven for 35 minutes. The brownie will largely baked, however with a very wobbly part within the centre once you take it out of the oven – that is precisely the way you need it to be for a fudgy centre. For those who desire cakier brownies, bake for an additional 5 minutes.
  7. As we’re making a fudgy brownie, you have to it to chill totally earlier than reducing else it could be gentle and runny within the center. You’ll be able to both go away 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 raise the complete brownie sq. out of the tin (I raise 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, go away to sit down for 30 seconds then stir – if nonetheless thick, microwave for just a few seconds (10 seconds max) and stir once more till clean and shiny. Do not overheat as it should 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!
