Tasty Tuesday Two Ingredient Lemon Bars!

I made a rather strange concoction for Easter. A friend of mine posted a recipe for lemon bars on Facebook. All you had to do was mix a box of angel food cake mix with two cans of lemon pie filling, spread it in a greased 9x13 pan and bake it at 350 for 25 minutes.Then let it cool and dust with powdered sugar.

Unfortunately, when I went to the grocery, they were out of lemon pie filling, so I bought cherry. It tasted okay, but 25 minutes wasn't nearly long enough. I'd give it at least 45 minutes, maybe longer, until the middle doesn't jiggle anymore. I had to bake mine twice. It comes out sort of spongy, but sweet and very moist. You can dust the top with powdered sugar if you like, although whipped cream would've been better.

I won't post the picture of the cherry. It was kinda ugly. The lemon version is prettier. I need to get the stuff to make it sometime when Mikey's home from college. He's a big lemon bar fan.

Then again, I'm not sure he's ever going to graduate. He says he'll finish in August, but he's been saying stuff like that for the past two years. Maybe I'll hold off on the lemon bars until he actually graduates.


  1. Sometimes You can substitute and sometimes you shouldn't. I think , if you want lemon bars. You can only use lemon. And if we want Derek Davenport, no one like him. He's still such a Tasty Hunk.

  2. I like this recipe, Cheryl. Love lemon bars and the easier, the better. Might run to the store this afternoon. Great pic of Derrick - very delish!

  3. Hopefully your store won't be out of lemon pie filling!

  4. I super love angel food cake; I love lemon bars; I love cherry bars; I love looking at Derrick. Just a major love fest all the way around! *snort*
