Easy Strawberry Brownies Recipe

Rich and fudgy homemade strawberry brownies are blended with jam and topped with fresh strawberries!


– 1/2 cup (113g) unsalted butter – 3 ounces (85g) dark chocolate (about 70% cacao) – 1/2 cup (60g) all-purpose flour – 1/2 cup (42g) unsweetened cocoa powder – 1/4 teaspoon salt – 1 cup (200g) granulated sugar – 2 large egg – 1 teaspoon vanilla extract – 1/2 cup chopped strawberries, plus more for topping the brownies* – 2 to 3 tablespoons strawberry jam, stirred well


Step 1

Heat the oven to 350°F. Parchment paper should overhang two edges of an 8-inch square baking pan. Grease the paper and vulnerable pan sections.

Step 2

Put butter and chocolate in a large microwave-safe bowl. In 30-second increments, microwave at half-power until butter and chocolate melt when mixed. Let cool slightly.

Step 3

Mix flour, cocoa powder, and salt. Set aside. Mix sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a bowl.

Step 4

Add sugar to chocolate and combine well. Add the flour mixture and stir well. Mix in chopped strawberries.

Step 5

Place batter in pan and spread evenly. Drop jam over batter and stir with a thin knife into brownies. Additional strawberries can be added to the batter.

Step 6

Bake for 35–40 minutes until a pick inserted into the center comes out with crumbs. The brownies should cool completely on a wire rack. 

Step 7

The overhanging liner helps pull brownies off the pan and onto a cutting board for squares. Fudgy, sticky brownies may need a quick refrigeration before cutting.
