To create these strawberry brownies, you’ll need:

  • For the Brownies:
    • 15.25 ounces of strawberry cake mix
    • 2 large eggs
    • ⅓ cup of salted butter, melted (or 1/3 cup oil for an alternative)
    • 1 teaspoon of strawberry extract
  • For the Glaze:
    • ¾ cup of powdered sugar
    • 2 Tablespoons of strawberry preserves
    • 1 ½ Tablespoons of milk


  1. Preheat Oven and Prepare Pan: Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (177°C). Take an 8×8-inch or 9×9-inch baking dish, spray it with nonstick cooking spray, and line the bottom with parchment paper. Ensure the paper extends up two sides for easier removal of the brownies later.
  2. Mix Brownie Batter: In a large mixing bowl, combine the strawberry cake mix, eggs, melted butter, and strawberry extract. Stir until you achieve a thick, well-combined batter.
  3. Bake: Pour the batter into your prepared pan, spreading it evenly. Bake for 18-25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Remember, oven times may vary, so it’s wise to start checking at the 18-minute mark.
  4. Cool and Glaze: After baking, allow the brownies to cool completely on a wire rack. Meanwhile, prepare the glaze by whisking together the powdered sugar, strawberry preserves, and milk until smooth. Once the brownies are cooled, pour the glaze over them and spread evenly.
  5. Serve: Slice the brownies into 9 large or 12 smaller pieces, and they’re ready to serve!

Tips for Perfect Strawberry Brownies

  • Parchment Paper Trick: Using parchment paper not only prevents sticking but also makes it incredibly easy to lift the brownies out for slicing.
  • Glaze Consistency: If your glaze is too thick, add a little more milk, a teaspoon at a time, until you reach the desired consistency. If it’s too thin, add a bit more powdered sugar.
  • Serving Suggestion: These brownies are delicious on their own, but for an extra treat, serve them with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or a dollop of whipped cream.


These Strawberry Brownies are the perfect treat for anyone looking to satisfy their sweet tooth with something special. With the ease of cake mix and the charm of homemade baking, these brownies offer a delightful taste of strawberry and a perfect texture that’s sure to please.
