Easy Cake Mix Lemon Cheesecake Bars

Layers of lemon burst crust, sweet lemon cheesecake filling, and lemony cream cheese frosting, these delicious lemon bars are a great way to welcome Spring.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 50 minutes
Servings 20 servings


  • 1 lemon cake mix
  • 1 can lemon frosting
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 8oz cream cheese softened
  • 4 eggs 2 for crust, 2 for cheesecake filling
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Preheat oven, 350 degrees.

  2. In a mixing bowl, add lemon cake mix, 2 eggs, and melted butter. Use a fork to mix until dough forms.  Press into a greased 9x13-inch pan (I love my glass pyrex pan).  Set aside.

  3. In a clean mixing bowl, blend cream cheese and lemon frosting together. Split mixture into 2 parts. (1/2 will be used in the cheesecake filling and the other 1/2 will be used as the lemon cream cheese frosting).

  4. To make the cheesecake filling, take a bowl with 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture and add 2 eggs and vanilla.  Beat until blended. Spread evenly over crust. 

  5. Bake at 350 degrees for 38-42 minutes until set.  A toothpick poked into the center should come out clean when it's done. Cool completely before frosting.

  6. Using the remaining 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture, frost bars. Cut into 20-24 pieces and enjoy!
