Super easy any flavor brownies

This recipe was originally written for strawberry brownies. However, I have since used it to make more flavors that I can count! Blondies, butterscotch chip blondies, almond, confetti cake, red velvet, carrot cake brownies and more! You can literally make any flavor cake mix into 'brownies'!

Confetti cake brownies and strawberry brownies

This recipe is super convenient when you need a last minute dessert and want something a touch more impressive than standard brownies! I'm not stranger to using a cake mix to make other desserts, I also have a recipe for Pillow Soft Cake Mix Cookies. As with this one you can use any cake mix and there's just a few steps!  

So lets just get baking....

Cake mix brownies recipe

These cake mix brownies are super easy and wonderfully yummy! I was given this recipe at a party in 2013 and have been making them ever since! The original recipe used strawberry cake mix. I actually think they're cake-bars, but for the sake of argument lets call them brownies. lol

Ingredients for strawberry cake mix brownies

They are soft and moist with the glaze adding just a hint of sweetness. This is one of those super easy recipes that you will fall back on again and again. Even's not terribly common so you'll have everyone begging for the recipe.


1 box cake mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup oil

1 cup powdered sugar
1 1/2 Tbs milk

Preheat oven to 350. Grease and flour a 9X13 pan. In a large bowl mix: cake mix, eggs and oil until blended. Spread in pan. I used an oiled spatula to spread it evenly. Batter will be thick. Bake at 350 for 15 minutes. Remove pan from oven to cool.

Mix powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl until smooth. You can pour the glaze on brownies when warm, or wait till cool. This glaze adds just a hint of sweetness.

You can use regular vanilla (or strawberry) icing if you prefer but we love these with the glaze Try it both ways and let me know how it works! I used canned whipped icing on these confetti brownies and added sprinkles for decoration. They look super cute and were so yummy!
