Microwave Blueberry Lemon Bars

 I know, I know, microwave lemon bars?!?

What will they think of next?

But they actually came out! (Shocking, right? I'm amazed by what you can microwave)
 I won't claim these are the best lemon bars ever (I'll leave that to these)

However, they are perfect for summer when its 90 degrees and the last thing you want to do is turn on your oven.
 And we now have 60 dollars worth of blueberries, picked from Rouster's Apple House.

I see: blueberry lemon bars, blueberry cheesecake, blueberry frozen yogurt, blueberry shakes, blueberry, blueberry, blueberry.

Yeah, it's July, and you can tell.
So here you have July blueberry lemon bars. I (well, my mom) found this recipe in the Costco magazine.

"Build Me Up Buttercup" preformed by the Temptations



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 TB confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup butter 


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 TB lemon zest 
  • 3 large effs
  • 1 TB flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  •  1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup blueberries


Grease 9 by 9 inch microwaveable pan.
To make the base: Mix the flour, confectioner's sugar and lemon zest. Melt the butter and combine with flour mixture. The mixture will be crumbly. Pat it into the greased pan. Microwave for 3 minutes at power level 8 until the base is firm (depending on the strength of iyr microwave, it may need an additional minute).

To make filling: Combine the sugar, lemon zest, eggs, flour, baking powder, salt and lemon juice in a medium-sized bowl. Beat for 2 minutes. Pour over base. Return pan to microwave and cook at power level 8 for 3 minutes until the filling is set but has a slight wiggle (like prepared Jell-O). Depending on the strength of your microwave, it may need another minute. Cool completely. Refrigerate a minimum of 4 hours or over night.
