My daughter named these "yellowies" since they're a lot like brownies, only not chocolate.

  • Combine cake mix, water, oil, egg, and applesauce in a large bowl; stir until just moistened. Spread batter into the prepared baking pan.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 20 to 22 minutes.

  • While the cake is baking, mix 2/3 cup powdered sugar and lemon juice together in a bowl. Pour glaze over the "yellowies" as soon as they come out of the oven. Spread glaze with a rubber spatula and set aside until completely cool and glaze has soaked in, about 30 minutes.

  • Dust with remaining powdered sugar and cut into 24 bars.
