The Strawberriest Strawberry Brownies
If you like strawberries - this is the dessert for you! These strawberry brownies have strawberries in the brownie, strawberry batter, strawberry glaze and strawberries on top! Booyah - come to strawberry town!
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line 8x8 pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Lightly spray with cooking spray. Combine cake mix, oil, and eggs. Fold in strawberries. Press cake mix dough into the bottom of the prepared pan. (It's very thick!! It's not a pourable batter) Bake brownies for 20 to 25 minutes. Allow brownies to cool for 10 minutes; lift carefully from pan using ends of parchment to lift. For the glaze, mix powdered sugar with the smashed strawberries (and extract if using) until smooth. It should be pourable but not watery. 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.
8" pans yield thicker brownies; 9" pans yield thinner ones.
Batter will be very thick; use a good mixer to mix and spatula to spread.
Refrigerate baked and glazed brownies for an hour or so before cutting, and they will cut easier.
