  • 16 ounce Angel Food Cake 1 box
  • 22 ounce lemon pie filling 1 can or 1 jar of lemon spread


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Line a deep 9x13 inch baking pan with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, empty the contents of the box of angel food cake and to it add the lemon pie filling. Whisk it until it's well incorporated, you'll notice it start to foam slightly.

  • Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes. I lean more towards the 40-minute mark because at 30 minutes, I've found that it's usually not done yet. But feel free to check at 30 minutes and adjust accordingly.

  1. Baking Time: Baking times can vary based on individual ovens, so keep a close eye on your bars around the 30-minute mark. They should have a golden-brown top and should not jiggle when lightly shaken.
  2. Mixing: Make sure to thoroughly mix the angel food cake mix and lemon filling to ensure a smooth, well-incorporated batter.
  3. Variations: You can easily swap out the lemon pie filling for other flavors like cherry or blueberry for a fun twist.
  4. Cooling: Allow the bars to cool completely before slicing. This ensures a clean cut and allows the bars to set properly.
  5. Serving Suggestion: Dust the bars with powdered sugar or serve with a dollop of whipped cream for an extra touch of decadence.
