Iced Lemon Bars

These lemon bars are a bit different than the ones you normally think about. Instead of a lemon curd on a shortbread crust, these are cakey but still lemony and delicious. Think more of a pound cake than that lemon bar and you’ll be a lot closer to the recipe here. It is not exactly that 1:1:1 ratio you get in a pound cake, but pretty close. The “ice” comes from the thick icing on top that forms a creamy layer of sugar and more lemon zest.

Key Takeaways:

  • The bars aren’t like the normal curd ones you are used to.
  • The cake is more like a pound cake, rich dense and buttery
  • The icing even adds a bonus sweet layer to kick up the cake a bit more

“These Iced Lemon Bars are dense, tender cakes that are topped with a lemon icing. They’re bursting with lemon flavor, though you’ll probably only need a single lemon to make a batch, and they’ll satisfy a citrus craving every time.”
