Lemon Cake Bars

45 minutes to prepare serves 6-8

INGREDIENTS

For the bars:
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 tablespoons lemon zest
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
For the glaze:
2 oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons lemon zest

PREPARATION

Preheat oven to 350°F and lightly grease an 8×8-inch cake pan with butter or nonstick spray. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and softened butter. Beat with an electric mixer until combined.
In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Pour into flour mixture and beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 2 minutes.
Spread into prepared cake pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 23-25 minutes.
Remove from oven and allow to cool completely before glazing. While bars cool, make the glaze.
In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, lemon juice, and lemon zest until well combined. Slowly add in the powdered sugar, beating until combined. Spread evenly over cooled bars. Slice and serve. Enjoy!
