These are the Best Lemon Bars, aside from being absolutely delicious, these easy lemon bars are made with an Angel Food Cake which makes this recipe super simple. 

I love the light texture the Angel Food cake gives to these bars too as well as the delicious lemon flavor throughout.

Lemon Bar 2 Ingredient Dessert

Now these Lemon Bars are not your traditional bars you might be thinking of with a crust and ooey gooey lemon. Those are great too.

These Lemon Bars are light, fluffy and will make your mouth smile.

I love desserts, and I really enjoy the flavor of lemon.  That’s why these Lemon Bars make the cut in our home. 

Lemon Bars with Angel Food cake mix cook up to perfection with a light texture, and packed full of lemon from the pie filling.

If you ever need a dessert to take to the office, or neighborhood picnic, this recipe is really perfect. 

You can make these Lemon Bars the day ahead and they will be perfect for your special occasion. 

One of the many reasons why they are the Best Lemon Bars ever.

Lemon Bar Cake Mix Recipe

You can make this recipe in a large bowl using a hand mixer or in a larger mixer, like I have used. 

Either way these lemon bars with cake miix will turn out perfect.

Lemon Bar Mixture before baking

For me, I prefer this recipe over many other Lemon Bar recipes because I feel like the Angel Food Cake holds the bar together really nicely. 

Often times Lemon Bars tend to break and fall apart and you aren’t sure what you are eating. 

With the Angel Food Cake mix as an ingredient, it combines with the Lemon Pie Filling to make a perfect texture.

Quick Tips

The Best Lemon Bar recipe  is easily adapted to a perfect Key Lime bar, by using Key Lime Pie Filling instead of Lemon Pie Filling.  Oh, can you even imagine how delicious those are??
