2 Ingredient Lemon Bars

I got this recipe from my daughter, Whitney. She knows how much I love anything lemon. I can eat a whole bag of Lemon Heads and don’t even care that my tongue is raw. You know when you get one that’s more sour than the others? I love that!

This is all you need:
1 box angel food cake mix
2 cans lemon pie filling (the recipe originally called for only 1 can)

Mix dry cake mix and cans of pie filling together in large bowl.

 

Pour into greased 9 x 13″ baking pan.

Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until top is starting to brown.

Cool on wire rack and sprinkle with powered sugar. It has a spongy texture.

Yum!

I know what you mean about lemon. When I make lemon meringue pie it has to be as tart as I can get it. Everyone seems to make them really sweet with a hint of lemon. I will definatly be trying this recipe :-)

I love anything lemon too! I will definitely try this one!!

Randi April 22, 2011 at 5:32 am

Yum – that sounds so good and I’m intrigued that it only has two ingredients. I’ll definitely try it. Do you think you could make it with any creamy pie filling?

Love this Leanne! Lemon bars are one of my favorites- and this is so easy. I just might have to try it for this weekend!

YUM!!! Saw your recipe and went shopping that night! Made them this morning and YUM-O!!! My mother has always made lemon pies for family gatherings. I love lemons, but just never ate her pie until last year (38 years old I am!!!). Fell in love, but her pies are way too complicated to make. I think I found the next best thing. Thanks for sharing and this will be on our Easter table tomorrow….if it lasts that long!

Cheers,

I didn’t have 2 cans of lemon filling. So I used 1 lemon and 1 cherry. I just took it out of the oven. It is very spongy & cake-like. Maybe after it cools it will “drop”. Next time I will definitely use a jellyroll pan.
I used:
1 – 1 pound, box Angel food Cake mix
1 – 21 oz. can of Lemon pie filling
1 – 21 oz. can of Cherry pie filling

Val June 29, 2012 at 1:12 pm

So, I followed the directions to the “T”. I use an oven thermometer so I know my oven temp was correct. However, the bars overflowed the pan and the center did not bake all the way through. Suggestions?

Nana Hayes May 19, 2013 at 11:31 am

How do I pin this to my Pinterest?

Roxann June 14, 2014 at 8:43 am

Val, try cutting back on the pie filling. I have made this for years and it’s a crowd favorite. I use about a can and a quarter.
