Equipment

  • 9x9-inch baking pan or 8x11-inch baking pan
  • Non-stick Cooking Spray
  • Large Mixing Bowl
  • Medium Mixing Bowl

Ingredients

Bars:

  • 15.25 ounces Strawberry Cake Mix 1 box
  • ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup milk
  • 3 Tablespoons strawberry jam
  • ½ cup white chocolate chips

Frosting

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1-2 Tablespoons Milk
  • 2 Tablespoons Strawberry jam

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray pan (either 8 x 11" or 9 x 9" pan) with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Combine the cake mix, oil, and egg in a large bowl.
  • Add the milk to the bowl slowly, you want the batter to remain as dense as possible.
  • Fold in the strawberry jam and white chocolate chips.
  • Dump batter in prepared pan and spread to the edges.
  • Bake for 25-30 minutes (they will be a little soft/gooey in the middle- just let them sit for about 20-30 minutes and they will set up).
  • To make frosting, combine all frosting ingredients together in a bowl and frost bars when cool (frosting is optional because these taste amazing without frosting, but I am a serious frosting lover, so I added some and loved the way it turned out).

Notes

  • Add milk slowly to keep batter dense
  • Let cake cool completely before frosting
  • Don't overbake, the bars may seem gooey but will set up
