HOW TO MAKE STRAWBERRY BROWNIES
Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 350 degrees.
Step 2: Line with parchment paper an 8 x 9-inch square baking pan and spray it with flour spray.
Step 3: Using a hand mixer, combine the strawberry cake mix, eggs, and oil. Mix well.
Step 4: Once the batter is thoroughly mixed, spread it evenly into the prepared pan.
Step 5: Place the pan inside the preheated oven and bake the batter for 15 minutes or until just set. Make sure to not overbake.
Step 6: Once done, remove from the oven and let the brownies cool for 10 minutes before carefully lifting it from the pan. Use the ends of the parchment paper to slowly lift the brownies.
Step 7: In a small bowl, mix the powdered sugar, water or lemon juice, and extract (if using). The consistency should be smooth, not watery.
Step 8: Pour the glaze over the brownie, then, spread to edges. This will make the glaze drip down-sides.
Step 9: Let the brownies cool and the glaze to set first before cutting the brownie into squares.
If you are using 8-inch pans, it’ll yield thicker brownies and with 9-inch pans, thinner brownies.
You should use a good mixer to mix and a spatula to spread as the batter will be very thick.
To cut the brownies easier, you should refrigerate the glazed brownies first for an hour or so.
