Ingredients
  

Brownies

  • 1 box strawberry cake mix any brand
  • 1/3 c. canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract

Glaze

  • 1 c. powdered sugar
  • 3 tbsp. strawberry jam I recommend Bonne Maman
  • 4 tbsp. milk 2%

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350F. Grease an 8 inch square baking pan with butter.
  • Combine strawberry cake mix, eggs, canola oil, and vanilla extract in a large bowl. Mix until well-combined. Please note that the batter will be dense.
  • Press the batter into the greased 8x8 pan. Pat it down tight, securing as low of a height as possible. Bake for roughly 16-20 minutes or until they have reached your desired level of doneness. Allow brownies to cool completely, roughly 10 minutes.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together powdered sugar, strawberry jam, and milk. Whisk until fully-incorporated. Spread glaze over the cooled brownies. Slice with a knife or pizza cutter + enjoy!

Notes

  • You will want to press the brownie dough as tightly into your greased pan as possible. This will help the batter stay dense.
  • Do not follow the instructions on the back of the cake mix; you will add a different amount of eggs/oil than you would for a traditional strawberry cake (and no water).
  • To check the doneness of the brownies, insert a toothpick into the middle. If it comes out clean, they are done.
  • Allow brownies to fully cool before glazing them; this will help maximize the glaze.
  • To cut brownies, you can use a knife - however, I recommend a pizza cutter. So much easier!
