Strawberry Lemonade Cake Mix Bars Recipe

These Strawberry Lemonade Cake Mix Bars are so easy to make and full of amazing flavor. They come together in a matter of minutes and taste so yummy. They are the perfect spring or summer treat.

Growing up, we didn’t drink a lot of soda or sugary drinks. However, when we did, we all loved when our mom bought Strawberry Lemonade.

We all loved and still to this day, love the combination of strawberry and lemon.

This dessert was inspired by my childhood, because the flavor combination is out of this world.

It only takes a few minutes to come together and has the most amazing flavor. You are going to love this simple and delicious dessert.

It is the perfect combination of sweet and tart, and will definitely be a crowd favorite this spring/summer.

A delicious strawberry cake base with gooey lemon filling and creamy lemon frosting.

do these freeze well?

This recipe is best when made and eaten within the same day, or few days.

However, if you have leftovers, and want to save them for a rainy day, these do freeze extremely well.

We recommend putting them in a ziplock bag, or in an airtight container for freezing, but they do freeze very well.

could i use a different cake mix?

For this recipe, you could easily use a different cake mix. A lemon cake mix would also be very delicious still, because it would still be more sweet than tart.

You could also use a cherry chip cake mix, and that would still taste very delicious with the lemon.

White cake mix has a little bit different consistency, but I am sure it would still be a yummy combination with the lemon frosting.

    I made these tonight, as our 4 year old requested “lemonade bars”...requiring a quick google search to see if such things exist. 🙂I used a cherry chip cake mix, as that is what I had on hand, and it turned out very well!! It was a hit with my husband and our two small children (2 and 4). Thank you!!
