While this is not a substitute for the original lemon bars, it does make a very moist and tasty angel food cake. The recipe is extremely easy to make(one bowl) and makes a delicious diabetic dessert. I'll have to keep this one in my recipe file to fullfill my sweet tooth.

Thank you for a wonderful recipe. I made this exactly by your recipe and made Debe's pudding frosting (#18812) with vanilla pudding to top it off. It was such a big hit at work that my co-workers were brainstorming on different flavor combinations for next time! Definitly a keeper!

This recipe is a top pick! I've made it several times for different people, and everyone loves it. One comment was "this is one of the best cakes I've ever eaten". So low in sugar, incredibly moist, and the prep time is one of the quickest. Definitely a keeper!

Great diabetic recipe. I think even non-diabetics would like this. It's a light, fluffy lemon cake. So simple to make and the powdered sugar gives just the right amount of sweetness. Great recipe. You could do so many different flavors with this recipe. Thanks so much for posting.

Not bad for low fat and very easy to prepare. I thought they tasted better the second day. They had a more pronounced lemon flavor. Will make again--especially when I watching fat and cholesterol intake.

I made these bars exactly as the recipe stated. Mine took a few extra minutes in the oven, but I have an old oven. I loved the texture of the bars and the fact that they are lower in sugar than most bars. They were a bit tart in taste, but not bad. I took half the bars to my parents and they enjoyed them too. Thanks for posting, I will make again.

This was very tasty - I hardly noticed the lack of real sugar. But, just like Pam-I-Am, my cake sunk in the middle. I made this to take to a party where one of the guests was diabetic, but because it didn't look very presentable, I substituted something else at the last minute. Next time, I will try cooling it in the oven without opening the door after turning off the heat.

Definitely lite, but definitely not what I consider lemon bars. It is more like lemon cake. Tastes good and even better with a little vanilla frozen yogurt. I made as directed and baked for 35 minutes but mine sunk in the middle. I don't know if this is how it should have turned out, but that's what happened. I think if I make this again, I would add about 5 or 10 minutes to the baking time. Could be because I used a 9x13 pyrex glass baking dish.

Great recipe! Thanks for posting. Pretty much angel food cake with a hint of lemon. Not too sweet, but the powder sugar balances that out.

Certainly I would not confuse these for regular ooey gooey lemon bars, but really nice none the less! A good fast and easy dessert that I have very little guilt eating. Yum!
