In this note we investigate the fixed point sets for the iterations of a generalization of the two-dimensional discrete baker's transformation. In particular, we will derive explicit formulas for the fixed points, and the number of fixed points. Moreover, we will show that the set of all fixed points is a closed set. This generalizes the some of known results for the classical baker's transformation.
