Why you Need to Try This  Strawberry Brownie Dessert!

I’m all about Healthy Food Recipes [1], but when you’re celebrating, a cake is definitely in order! Here’s how I know this Brownie Shortcake satisfies everyone.

We hosted a friend’s birthday party a couple years ago and I didn’t know he wasn’t a fan of chocolate. (Honestly, I didn’t know that was possible 🙂 )

Excitedly I made this recipe.

It was perfect for a mid-summer celebration. When it was time to serve the brownie cake, I could see the look on his face was not one of delight, so I asked why. He sheepishly said he wasn’t really into chocolate desserts, but was happy to have a slice of the shortcake. I’m sure it was just to be polite.

Luckily all turned out well because he loved the cake! I think it was just the right amount of sweetness and the chocolate was perfectly balanced by the sour cream frosting.

Yay! Another happy foodie who loves a Strawberry Chocolate Dessert!

Given the red, white the blue theme of the berries and frosting, you could serve this brownie dessert for Memorial Day, 4th of July or all summer long for a festive celebratory dessert.

Making the brownies in a round pan gives the shortcake a shape that can easily be cut in half once it’s cooled and then layered with the sour cream frosting.

Brownie Strawberry Shortcake Baking Tips

With this recipe, you have options.

You can use your favorite boxed brownie mix or make one from scratch. These Dark Chocolate Brownies [2] would do the trick (seriously, amazing in this recipe or just by themselves), but you’d probably need to double the recipe to have enough to cut in half and fill with frosting.

This recipe is best if the brownies are a bit fudgy, so if your boxed brownie mix calls for two eggs, just use one. Also, do not over bake! That’s how you get your fudgy layers.

Make sure you totally cool the brownie before you cut it in half. Oh, and it’s even easier to frost if you place the brownie in the fridge for a hour or so.

All types of berries work for the recipe, but you can also try kiwi or tangerines for a different twist.
