Lemon Batter Bars

This past weekend I spent time at my parent’s house and in between barbeques and trips to get ice cream we found time to whip up a couple holiday favorites. Chocolate chip bars for the boys and lemon batter bars for us girls. You may know of my love for all things lemon (as you can see here, here and here), but these bars hands down are my favorite. They’re so simple to make and it’s hard to just have one!

Lemon Batter Bars
1 package lemon cake mix (I used Duncan Hines)
½ cup salted butter; melted
3 eggs
1 package cream cheese; softened
1 can lemon frosting (I used Duncan Hines)

1. Combine cake mix, butter and one egg until moist. Pat into a greased 9”x13” pan.
2. Blend lemon frosting into cream cheese until smooth.
3. Reserve a little over ½ cup for frosting baked bars.
4. Add remaining two eggs to the frosting mixture and beat on high for 5 minutes.
5. Spread frosting mixture (with the eggs) over the base.
6. Bake at 350 for 30-40 minutes.
7. Cool bars, frost, cut into bars and keep in the refrigerator.  


  1. yumm, anything with lemon and I'm in! xx

  2. I always believe that batter form of anything always tastes much better... so I must say these look that much yummier to me in the name alone! :) i tried to bake this weekend but never got around to it, which seems to be the norm! I need to be more proactive about it!
