REVIEW: 4 star recipe rating
Found this recipe at another site a few years back and made it for my students on a couple occasions. Also, I used a cream cheese frosting with a touch of lemon zest. Really tricked it out nicely. Definitely more lemon cake than bar, but my students loved it and so did this non-baker.

I tried this and I sure don't know how I could have messed up, but they didn't look like bars to me. It was like 1" high cake, and not gooey at all.

At first it would seem there is not enough 'liquid' but the lemon pie filling really soaks up the cake mix. The bars turn out with the angel food cake spongy, sticky texture plus tender coconut chewiness. It is a good blend of lemon and coconut flavors without being overwhelming. And FAST, cheap, and easy to make!!!!
