TWO INGREDIENT LEMON BARS

September 23, 2012

This will probably a huge shock to exactly no one, but I love cooking. I was almost disappointed by how easy this recipe was. There’s barely any cooking to be done. In fact, if you want to send a less-than-recipe-savvy man into the kitchen, he’ll probably still be able to whip these up pretty handily himself.

Oh, and in case you needed just ONE more reason to make these already fabulous treats, each lemon bar is only 168 calories. Set, and spike.

TWO INGREDIENT LEMON BARS
Makes about 15 bars

1 box angel food cake mix (must be the 1-step kind)
22 ounces lemon pie filling

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine cake mix and pie filling together in a large mixing bowl. Spread mixture into greased 9×13 baking dish.

Bake for 30 minutes, or until lightly golden. Expect for these to be more of a cakey texture than other lemon bars. Top with powdered sugar, (but only if you don’t have any huge qualms with this recipe becoming a THREE ingredient endeavor.)

    I take it you follow the recipe on the cake box, or otherwise you wouldn’t have any liquid to mix ? or on the pudding box?

    The pin that led me to you had conflicting amounts of lemon filling – one part said 42 ounces, and another said 22, and then your blog says 22. They are in the oven now; I used 22 ounces and I have no idea what kind of angel food cake mix constitutes 1-step, but I wanted to verify the details, just in case this doesn’t go well! :) thanks!

    Although the recipe is indeed easy, they taste like lemon angel food cake and nothing like the traditional lemon bars. I would not this recipe again.

    Made these just as the recipe said to, but added 1/2 juiced lemon, 1 cup shredded coconut and 1 cup white chocolate chips. YUM!
