These lemon cake mix brownies are sweet, tart, and delicious and can be whipped up in less than an hour (and they make perfect teacher gifts)!
This week, I decided to tweak one of my all time favorite recipes that actually went viral on Pinterest, these strawberry brownies, and see if a lemon version would be equally yummy. The results were wonderful; the brownies were amazing!
I gave samples to some teenagers who were at the house studying for exams, and they all loved them. The brownies get a lot of lemony zing from using the fresh lemon juice in the glaze. I used Duncan Hines lemon supreme cake mix, but any lemon cake mix should work as long as it has NO pudding in the mix!!!!!
How do you make brownies from cake mix?
The simple recipe for making brownies from cake mix is as follows:
- 1 box of cake mix (without pudding in the mix)
- 2 large eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- 1/2-1 tsp extract (optional)
The above formula can be tweaked. You can use different flavors of cake mix and vary the flavors of extract.
How do you make glaze for cake mix brownies? You can glaze these brownies for added flavor and a lovely exterior. My go to glaze is as follows:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1-2 TB water (or fresh lemon juice or lime juice
- 1/2 tsp extract (optional)
I’ve also included the kitchen tools and gadgets that I use for these brownies and other baked goods. These are my favorites for measuring, timing, baking, glazing, etc….
So for a quick dessert to take to someone or serve on a dessert table, strawberry or lemon brownies are both savvy options! Whichever flavor you choose, don’t skip the glaze; it takes them over the top. Watch in the video below how quick and easy it is to glaze these.
I’d love to hear from any of you who try these brownies. Thanks so very much for visiting my site. As always, be blessed, and stay savvy!
