Lemon Bars: a Pinterest experiment

I got the urge to bake this past weekend but I didn’t want to invest a lot of time. A Pinterest idea popped into my head, Lemon Bars

All I needed was an angel food cake mix and lemon pie filling. Easy, quick, and low maintenance!

I combined the two together in my mixer. Was a bit of a strange texture but I may not have mixed well enough in fear of over mixing.

Slipped in a 350 degree oven for 30-32 minutes. It was only slightly brown on top.

Then after cooled I cut and served with powdered sugar.

It is a very spongy cake. I wouldn’t categorize it as a bar so much. It was very lemony and not overly sweet. Tasty none the less. But next go around I think a lemon icing or glaze would punch up the sweetness to cut the tartness.

This recipe is so easy and quick it’d be great for last minute baking needs. And it’s very pretty on a plate. For a Pinterest recipe this wasn’t too bad. Not the finest I’ve ever had but I’m not one to turn down desert!
