1 can (21 ounces) lemon pie filling
1 box (16 ounces) angel food cake mix
Powdered sugar for dusting
Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9×13-inch cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
Combine Ingredients: In a large mixing bowl, combine the entire can of lemon pie filling and the angel food cake mix. Gently fold the ingredients together until well combined. Be careful not to overmix; a few lumps are okay.
Transfer to the Pan: Pour the mixture into the prepared cake pan, spreading it evenly.
Bake: Place the pan in the preheated oven and bake for approximately 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Cooling Process: Once baked, the cake will rise significantly and then sink as it cools, creating a bar-like consistency. Allow the lemon bars to cool in the pan for at least 15-20 minutes before slicing.
Optional Topping: Dust the cooled lemon bars with powdered sugar for a finishing touch. This step is entirely optional but adds a delightful sweetness and visual appeal.
Slice and Serve: Cut the lemon bars into squares or rectangles, depending on your preference. Serve and enjoy the delicious simplicity of these two-ingredient lemon bars!
These bars are not only quick and easy to make but also boast a delightful combination of sweet and tangy flavors. They are perfect for a last-minute dessert or a sweet treat for any occasion.
