Poor Zack. He loves lemon-flavored desserts. I mean LOVES them. I loathe them. I can’t even stand the way they smell.
For this reason, I have never even made a lemon dessert. Every time I decide to make something sweet, he suggests something lemon with a hopeful expression. Finally, I relented and agreed to make him some lemon bars.
I figured with only 3 ingredients they couldn’t be that bad and would be super easy.
I was right and he absolutely loved them. I enjoy making him happy (even if it involves baking gross lemon-flavored things).
In his stocking at Christmas, I made him some coupons. One is redeemable to me for “one lemon-flavored dessert of his choice.” Aren’t I just the sweetest? 😉
– 1 lemon cake mix
– 2 eggs
– 1/3 c oil
– powdered sugar (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl, mix together cake mix, eggs, and oil. Mixture will be stiff. Spread mixture, using a spatula sprayed with cooking spray, into a greased 9×13 inch pan. Bake 13-15 minutes or until slightly golden on top. Cool, then sprinkle with powdered sugar, if desired, and cut into squares.
