These lemon cake batter bars bring a refreshing twist to an old favorite. Using lemon cake mix plus basic baking ingredients may be the easiest lemon bars you’ve ever made!
I’m sure I’ve mentioned before that I don’t feed my baking addiction nearly as much now that I work from home. Without willing taste testers in an office, I find I feed my sweets addiction too much if I have it in the house. I now reserve my baking for holidays and other gatherings with friends and family. For Easter my mom asked me to bring Chex Mix (of course!) and a dessert. I’ve been craving lemon desserts lately, so I thought I’d try a twist on my Cake Batter Blondies and use a lemon cake mix. Results = Yum! The consistency was perfect and they were so easy. Enjoy!
