What is the History of the Brownie?

The brownie’s origin is thought to be American. It is known as a bar cookie and is thought to get its name from the brown color of the cookie. The story has its origin coming from a cook that forgot to put baking powder in the chocolate cake batter recipe.

Bertha Palmer back in 1893, was a prominent Chicago socialite whose husband owned the Palmer House Hotel. She asked a pastry chef for a dessert that was best for ladies coming to Chicago’s World Columbian Exposition. She asked for a cake-like dessert smaller than a piece of cake that could be included in boxed lunches. Now you know the history behind the brownie.
