I am super skeptical of any too good to be true “Magic Recipe.” At the same time, because I’m always short on time, I’m usually willing to take a gamble on them.

These 2-Ingredient Lemon Bars are an absolute success story!

This recipe makes a light, spongy, refreshing lemon bar. My family gobbles them up, and every time I bring them to a party, I leave with an empty pan.

This post will show you how to make the most incredible Easy Lemon Bars with only 2-Ingredients!

What You’ll Need to Make Easy 2-Ingredient Lemon Bars

  • 16 oz Angel Food Cake Mix (dry)
  • 21 oz can of Lemon Pie Filling

You can also sprinkle the finished bars with powdered sugar (optional) if you’d like. They taste amazing as is, but I think the powdered sugar makes them look so much prettier, so I usually add it for that reason.

Side note: if you do not have a Powdered Sugar Duster, this one is under $5. I always keep a full shaker nearby and use it on everything from desserts to French Toast. A simple dusting of powdered sugar is an easy way to dress up even a simple box cake and eliminate the need for frosting. This little shaker has probably saved me more time (and calories from frosting!) than I can count.

Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Next, empty the angel food cake mix and the lemon pie filling into a LARGE mixing bowl. Stir the ingredients with a wooden spoon until totally combined.

I emphasized a large bowl because you are going to want to use a bowl that has significantly more room than the ingredients take up. The angel food cake mix is very light and powdery and will fly around a bit at the beginning. You want a bowl with sides high enough to contain the powder when you begin mixing.

After the two ingredients are completely incorporated into each other, pour the bar batter into the prepared baking pan. Use your wooden spoon to spread the batter to the edges, so that the pan is filled evenly.

Place the pan in the oven and bake for approximately 25 minutes.

Once cooled, you can sprinkle the bars with powdered sugar if you’d like. Cut into 12 bars and serve.

Even on a busy night, you can make a quick batch of these lemon bars for your family. Just mix the batter quickly and let them bake while you’re eating dinner. Let them cool during kitchen clean-up, sprinkle with a little powdered sugar (if desired), and serve.
