Kathleen made cupcakes for her birthday and I made this since I had like 10 brownie mixes in my pantry. I really liked this and it was easy to make. I made the brownie part the day before and assembled it just before we ate dinner.
Brownie Strawberry Shortcake
2 boxes pre made brownie mix
4 large eggs
⅔ cup canola oil
¼ cup water
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tablespoons vanilla instant pudding mix
3 cups strawberries, sliced
Preheat the oven according to the brownie packaging.
Grease 2 8 -inch cake pans with butter or cooking spray.Beth used 9 inch pans.
In a stand mixer with the whisk attachment combine brownie mix, eggs, oil and water.
Divide the batter between the prepared pans and bake according to the box instructions.
Let cool on wire racks, then turn out of the pans.
Meanwhile add the heavy cream to a stand mixer with the whisk attachment. Whip cream on high speed until peaks form.
Reduce the speed to medium, add the pudding mix, then increase the speed again to high and whip until stiff peaks form. Store in the fridge until ready to assemble cake.
To assemble place 1 layer of the brownie cake on a cake serving plate.Top with half of the whipped cream.
Layer half of the strawberries on top of the cream.
Place the second cake layer on top of the strawberries and repeat.
Slice and serve immediately.
