These are so easy you won't believe it. They are called 'brownies' mostly because of the texture, because they are not chocolate or brown, but they are very much a strawberry flavored brownie. I love the pretty pink color and can imagine them being great to serve for various holidays and events where pastels are appropriate...baby showers, Easter, Valentine's Day, little girl's parties!!!
A recipe for these has been floating around the internet for some time now, but I had to modify it some to come out moist and a little more tasty. Here is what you will need:
1 box strawberry cake mix (I used Duncan Hines Strawberry Supreme)
1/2 cup oil
1 cup confectioners sugar
1 1/2 Tbs. milk
1 tsp. strawberry flavoring (optional, but makes them much tastier)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix the cake mix, eggs, and 1/2 cup oil with a large spoon. There is no need to beat this with a mixer, and it's better if you do not.
Spray a 9"x9" or an 11"x9" baking pan with nonstick baking spray. Spread the batter in the pan and smooth to the edges. This batter is really thick and sticky so you will have to work it to the edges of the pan some. Place in a 350 degree oven and bake for 14 -15 minutes or until set. Do not over bake these, just like brownies, they are best a little chewy.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes. Combine the confectioner's sugar, milk and strawberry flavoring until smooth. Pour over the brownies to glaze.
Allow to set until cool enough to cut in squares...if you can wait that long!!!
These are so good with a cold glass of milk or a good cup of coffee!!!
