I loved having Wes' parents here this week! It was fun to have our parents finally meet each other.
I made these Lemon Cake Bars for dessert :)
They were delicious and so easy to make! No crazy ingredients, I had everything here already. The consistency is similar to a brownie, so not spongy. They are very light and lemony--perfect for Summer!
Slightly adapted from here.
6 Tablespoons butter
1 2/3 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1/3 cup lemon juice (about 2 lemons)
2/3 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cream butter and sugar.
Stir in eggs.
Stir in lemon extract.
Combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
Stir in milk until well combined.
Pour into a greased and floured 13x9 inch pan.
Bake at 350F for 25 minutes.
Combine lemon juice and sugar in a bowl.
Pour over hot cake.
Bake for 5 additional minutes.
Cut into squares.
Its as easy as that! Enjoy :)
I love Summer...only 13 more days until my fiancé arrives!
