Strawberry Brownies

Strawberry Brownies

These 2 ingredients Strawberry Brownies are perfect for strawberry season! Made with cake mix and fresh strawberries, they are dense and chewy with a light strawberry glaze.

The texture of these Strawberry Brownies is perfectly dense, chewy and fudgy, just like your favorite chocolate brownies, but with a fun summertime twist!

Most Strawberry Brownies are made with strawberry cake mix. Since it is strawberry season, I really wanted to come up with a way to incorporate fresh strawberry flavor.

Why not?!

The strawberry puree adds the most perfect authentic strawberry flavor to these bars. I’ll never make them any other way!

Ingredients

  • 1 lb fresh strawberries washed and chopped
  • 1 16oz vanilla cake mix, no pudding added
  • 1/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons milk

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and line a 9x9" pan with parchment paper (optional, but will ensure the brownies remove easily!). Lightly grease the parchment paper or pan.
  2. Puree strawberries and strain to remove any seeds.
  3. In a large bowl, stir together cake mix and 3/4 cup strawberry puree -- you can use a sturdy spoon or an electric mixer. The batter will be thick, almost like cookie dough. This is what you want!
  4. Spread batter into pan using a greased spatula or press it in with your hands.
  5. Bake for 23-27 minutes, until set through the middle with no jiggles.
  6. Let cool to room temperature on the counter.
  7. Whisk together the powdered sugar and milk and pour over brownies. Refrigerate 2-3 hours before slicing and serving (optional, but recommended for clean slices!)
 

It looks delicious!
