Two-Ingredient Lemon Bars Recipe:

Two-Ingredient Lemon Bars Recipe:


  • 1 can lemon pie filling
  • 1 box angel food cake mix (dry)

Optional Toppings:

  • Powdered sugar (for dusting)


1. Preheat the Oven:

  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).

2. Prepare Baking Dish:

  • Grease or line a baking dish. A standard size, like 9×13 inches, works well.

3. Mix Lemon Pie Filling and Cake Mix:

  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the dry angel food cake mix and the entire can of lemon pie filling. Stir until the ingredients are well combined. The mixture will be thick and may have some lumps from the pie filling.

4. Transfer to Baking Dish:

  • Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish, spreading it evenly.

5. Bake:

  • Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 25-30 minutes or until the top is browned and has started to split. The bars will puff up significantly during baking.

6. Cool:

  • Allow the lemon bars to cool in the baking dish. As they cool, they will settle and form a delicious, moist texture.

7. Optional Powdered Sugar:

  • Once cooled, you can dust the top of the lemon bars with powdered sugar for an extra touch of sweetness.

8. Slice and Serve:

  • Slice the lemon bars into squares or rectangles. Use a sharp knife to ensure clean cuts.

9. Enjoy:

  • Serve and enjoy these quick and easy two-ingredient lemon bars!


  • Experiment with different pie filling flavors for variety. Cherry, blueberry, or raspberry pie filling can work well.
  • If you prefer a less sweet version, you can reduce the amount of powdered sugar or omit it altogether.

These two-ingredient lemon bars are a simple and delightful dessert that’s perfect for a quick treat. Enjoy the bright and citrusy flavor without the fuss of a complicated recipe!
