I had to use a Butter Pecan cake mix because that is all that I had on hand but it turned out perfectly. the lemon flavor was good and would likely be more intense with a blander cake mix like the yellow mix called for. Otherwise I did everything according to the recipe and loved it. I think I would intensify the lemon flavor a bit by adding some lemon extract or maybe a teaspoon or so of lemon zest The second time I made it with a white cake mix and added extra lemon zest and extract. Made it an even better dessert. All the grandkids loved it even the youngest ones. Read More

I grated some lemon zest and added it in with the cake mixture and also the egg with condensed milk mixture. On top of the filling I put some fresh raspberries then the crumble topping and baked it. All these additions made the bar very flavorful. Great to take to work and share. Would make these again. Read More
