Strawberry Lemon Cake Bars with Lemon Glaze

Finally Friday! It's the last day of The Garden's Bounty recipe series hosted by Savannah of Hammock Tracks.
We are ending on a sweet note.  Today we are sharing with you desserts that use up fresh garden goods.  I chose a great summertime dessert with tangy lemons and juicy sweet strawberries.  This recipe is slightly adapted from one I found at Bakeaholic Mama.

  • 1 cup butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • Zest of 2 lemons (2-3 tbsp)
  • Juice of 1½ lemons (about ¼ cup +2 tbsp), divided
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¾ cup fresh strawberries, diced
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Coat an 8x8” glass baking dish with baking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar together. Add egg, lemon zest, and ¼ cup lemon juice. Stir until combined.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and stir until just combined. Gently fold in strawberries.
  4. Press dough into the bottom of the pan. Bake for about 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool.
  5. For the glaze, combine the powdered sugar and remaining 2 tbsp lemon juice. Pour over cooled bars. Cut and serve.
