Strawberry Brownies are a fudgy chocolate brownies with added flavour of fresh strawberries in each bite. These are easy to make and super delicious to eat. Here is how to make this recipe from scratch.
Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees F (180 Degrees C). Line an 8×8 inch baking tray with parchment paper. Allow some of the paper to hang on the sides of the pan. It will make it easier to pull out the brownie from the pan once baked.
Melt 4 oz (8 tbsp) unsalted butter and 6 oz (175 g) chopped dark chocolate in a non-stick skillet over medium heat. Keep stirring using a silicon spatula while melting.
Once melted, remove the skillet from the heat and let the mixture cool down a bit. Add 1 cup (7 oz) of granulated sugar and stir until combined.
Add 2 large eggs to the skillet and whisk using a wire whisk until combined.
Now add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, ½ cup (2.2 oz) all-purpose flour, 2 tablespoon (0.35 oz) unsweetened cocoa powder, and ½ teaspoon baking powder and mix just until combined. Do not overmix otherwise the brownies will become tough.
Transfer the batter to the prepared baking tray.
Cut 8-10 strawberries into thin slices. Top the batter with the strawberry slices. For best result, press the slices in between 2 sheets of kitchen tissue to remove excess moisture and then arrange them over the batter.
Keep the tray in the middle rack of the oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove the tray from the oven and let the brownie cool down a bit. Pull them out of the pan by holding the excess parchment paper and cut into squares. Serve.
Do not over-mix the batter while mixing. You can use light chocolate if you are not a fan of dark chocolate.To make eggless brownies, replace 2 large eggs with ¼ cup yogurt and follow the rest of the recipe as is.To make vegan brownies, replace butter with vegetable oil and eggs with condensed coconut milk or yogurt. Also, make sure you use vegan chocolate instead of regular dark chocolate.
