Strawberry Brownies

I have made this recipe twice, once as written and once using raspberries instead of strawberries (though I just used the puree and did not add chunks of fruit). I would, however, recommend not using a pie plate as the recipe calls for but rather just a square or rectangular baking dish. 

The brownies tested done with a toothpick in the pie plate but when I took them out and later cut them, they were still way too gooey in the middle. I ended up putting them back in the oven for an additional 15 minutes to firm them up a little.

Excellent brownies! My first experience with strawberry brownies - will make again. I did purée all of the berries, although added a layer of sliced berries on bottom thinking it would look nice inverted - bad idea. The bottom was just soggy. Lesson learned. I also added some mini semisweet chocolate chips which was a better idea.


Strawberry Brownies

INGREDIENTS

FOR BROWNIES:
1 box strawberry cake mix (I use Duncan Hines)

2 eggs

1/3 cup oil


FOR GLAZE:
1 cup powdered sugar
1 -2 TB water or milk

INSTRUCTIONS

FOR BROWNIES:
  • 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.

FOR GLAZE:
  • 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.
