Turn your favorite Gooey Butter Cake into a Lemon dessert! Lemon Cake Bars will make you quite happy, and nobody has to know you started with a mix!

Ingredients

For the crust:

  • 1 box (18.25oz) Lemon Cake Mix (I used Duncan Hines)
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg

For the filling:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, butter and egg. Press into the bottom of a 13x9 baking dish. Combine cream cheese, sugar, vanilla eggs in a mixer. Beat until fluffy. Pour over crust. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 40-45 minutes (I underbake mine a little to get that definitive separation in layers). Remove from oven and cool completely.
  2. Refrigerate for 4 hours (or overnight) for best flavor. ENJOY.
