These lovely & delicious strawberry brownies have the flavor of strawberry cake, the texture of a brownie, and the glazed appearance of a scone.
This strawberry brownies recipe is the most repinned item from my sweet tooth pinterest board and most popular recipes on Family Savvy, and for good reason. These strawberry brownies call for only five ingredients, take less than 30 minutes to make, and look and taste like a lovely bakery confection.
I’ve made these for baby (girl) showers, wedding teas, and teen get-togethers. The pink obviously doesn’t bother the guys, as I once had a boy mom email for the recipe (per her son’s request).
The key ingredient in these brownies is strawberry cake mix. I’ve always used Duncan Hines, as that is my favorite brand. I am sure others would work also as long as they don’t have pudding in the mix. Although I’ve never used pudding mix for these, I fear it would make them too soft.
1 box strawberry cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)
1/3 cup oil
1 cup powdered sugar
1 -2 TB water or milk
How to make it :
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Line 8″ square baking pan with parchment (and spray with Pam).
Mix strawberry cake mix, eggs, and oil with hand mixer until well combined.
Spread batter evenly into pan.
Bake for 15 minutes or until just set; be careful not to overcook.
Allow brownies to cool for 10 minutes; lift carefully from pan using ends of parchment to lift.
Mix powdered sugar and water until smooth. Add just enough water until thick but spreadable.
Pour glaze over brownies, spreading to edges so that glaze will drip down sides.
Allow brownies to cool and glaze to set before cutting into squares
