Lemon bars only 2 ingredients

I’ve been looking for yummy healthier desserts to make & found this recipe.
It is 221 calories per serving but was totally worth it.
All you add is a can of lemon pie filling and an angel food cake.
Mix the 2 items together by hand & bake pour in ungreased 13x9 pan bake at 350 degrees for about 20 min or until top is golden brown.
Note the cake will rise very high, but let it cool completely & it “falls” then I sprinkled with a little bit of powdered sugar.
I sliced it into 12 pieces.

Here is what I scanned into my recipes to get the nutritional facts:
Lucky Leaf - Lemon Pie Filling
Betty Crocker - Angel Food Cake Mix (White)
Great Value or Domino - Powdered Sugar, 1/4 cup

Per Serving: 221 52 0 3 0

    YUM... thanks!
  • This sounds SO good, but I had to look at the carb count. For the entire recipe there are 587 carbs! Whoa! If there are 12 servings that is almost 49 carbs per serving. As much as I would LOVE this recipe, I have to say no way. :( I love lemon bars.

    If you use an Angelfood cake and a can of crushed pineapple, the calories are 148 for 1/12 of the cake. That is a nice size piece of cake with a cup of coffee!

    One of the recipes that I enjoy making is the diet pop cake recipes. If you can find a low carb cake mix or unsweetened cake mix that is light in colour, add 1 regular can diet orange crush and no other ingredients. Bake in oven. Voila. For dark cakes such as chocolate, add 1 can diet pepsi.

    I made it for Easter and it was a hit! Used cool whip instead of powdered sugar. Everyone, even the little one liked it!
