good - very easy! I liked it with a lemon glaze (lemon juice, powdered sugar and a pinch of salt) poured over the top while hot to make a thin topping. This is good to have on hand for an easy and fast sweet tooth need.
It was okay. Not at all what I was expecting. My 8 year old made it though so of course it was great to her. It puffed up and ended up being a very dense lemony almost pound cake consistency with a thick lemon pudding middle. I did not know if the insides were supposed to be pudding but it had cooked longer than the specified time and was looking like it might burn on top. Everyone ate it and no one complained but definitely not the lemon bars I was after. Will let my kids make it again because for them, it was very easy and did not need a lot of supervision.
This recipe was a springboard for me to Banana Walnut Cake!! I made my own pie filling from about 5 frozen bananas, a small package of banana cream pudding mix and about 1 cup of milk. Then added the cake mix and some chopped walnuts. After baking, let it cook, spread with cream cheese frosting and sprinkle with chopped walnuts. It was a hit at my Church dinner and everyone wants the recipe! Soon I will try it with other fruit pie or puddings. Your imagination is the only limit!!
Wow! This is delicious. I made two. One of them was lemon and the other one was strawberry. They were both delicious, but we prefer strawberry. All I did was use strawberry pie filling instead of lemon. YUM! This is easy and fast and relatively low calorie.
use cream cheese frosting and can put lemon extract in.
OR- frosting- 6 oz cream cheese, 3 tbsp melted butter, 1/2 tbsp lemon extract, 2 1/2 c. powder sugar. Mixed until creamy.
These are so easy and delicious! Frost with cream cheese frosting from the store. You can't go wrong!
These are so easy and yummy, too! Anyone could make them. Next time I'm going to have my kitchen phobic daughter do, but I will be greasing my pan. They are sticky.
These were okay. Big lemon flavor...next time I might not add a whole can of lemon filling.
