The History of Brownies: Exploring the Origin, Evolution, and Signature Recipes of This Beloved Dessert

In the smoldering aftermath of the Great Chicago Fire, a love story forged from ambition and intellect ultimately gave birth to a culinary marvel: the world's first brownie. 

Brownies, those beloved squares of chocolatey goodness, have a rich and fascinating history that many may not know. At Dello Mano, we take pride in crafting luxury brownies that carry forward this legacy with our unique touch

From Ashes to Dessert: The Love Story That Birthed the World's First Brownie

The creation of the brownie faced numerous challenges. Chicago was recovering from the Great Fire. Bertha Honore, a young and for the time unusually educated woman, captured the heart of the wealthy businessman Potter Palmer. Smitten by her charm and intellect, he waited a decade or so to court her. Their union a meeting of the minds, led to their marriage, his wedding gift to her a hotel, and ultimately the invention of the brownie. Who would have thought—a story one might think akin to a Hollywood script, led to the invention of brownies?

The Birthplace of Brownies: The Palmer House Hotel

Nestled in the heart of Chicago, the Palmer House Hotel stands as a grand testament to luxury and innovation. This opulent establishment, with its gilded ceilings and lavish decor, stands on ground that whispers tales of an era where  creativity knew no bounds. First built as an extravagant wedding gift from Potter to Bertha, the hotel was a symbol of their love and ambition. The hotel opened just 13 days before the Great Chicago Fire and was subsequently totally destroyed.  
A man of determination Potter secured a bank loan of over $1.7 Million on the basis of his signature alone and set about rebuiling the hotel. It was here, some years later amid the splendor of this rebuilt hotel, that the humble brownie was born. Now well established in the Chicago social set, Bertha Palmer played an integral role across many activities and committees.  It was indeed Bertha that commissioned the brownie for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition.

The Visonary Behind the Brownie : Bertha Palmer

Born into a prosperous Kentucky family in 1849, Bertha Honoré Palmer was no ordinary woman. Her father, Henry Hamilton Honoré, moved the family to Chicago when Bertha was six, where she received an elite private education. At a time when women’s roles were largely confined to the domestic sphere, Bertha distinguished herself with her intellect and charm, captivating Potter Palmer, a successful dry goods store owner who was 23 years her senior. He met her when she was just 13 and vowed to court her when she came of age, a promise he fulfilled upon his return from a three-year recuperation in Europe.

Bertha graduated with honors from the Convent of the Visitation in Washington, D.C., demonstrating proficiency in various subjects uncommon for women of her era. She married Potter in 1870, and their partnership became a powerhouse in Chicago's social and economic landscape. Bertha's influence was instrumental during the reconstruction of Chicago following the Great Fire of 1871. She convinced Potter to stay and rebuild the city, emphasising the duty of every Chicagoan to contribute to its revival.

Potter's gift to Bertha, the Palmer House Hotel, was not just a symbol of their love but a testament to their shared vision of luxury and innovation. The hotel, which reopened in 1873 after the fire, was a marvel of its time, featuring the city's first elevators and electric light bulbs. Bertha, with her refined taste, infused the hotel with European elegance, commissioning French muralist Louis Pierre Rigal to paint the ceiling fresco and adorning the interiors with Tiffany 24-karat gold chandeliers and exquisite artwork.

 Bertha's contributions extended beyond her role as a socialite. She was a patron of the arts, amassing an impressive collection of French Impressionist paintings and championing artists like Monet and Renoir. Her philanthropic efforts were equally notable, as she actively supported women's rights, education, and social welfare. She played a pivotal role in the success of the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893, overseeing the Women's Building and ensuring that it showcased the achievements of women from around the world.

It was in the lavish setting of the Palmer House Hotel, amid its garnet-draped chandeliers and opulent decor, that the humble brownie was born.

The Brownie and the World Columbian Exposition

Bertha Honoré Palmer’s role at the 1893  World’s Columbian Expositionwas groundbreaking. As the president of the Board of Lady Managers, she led the efforts to highlight women’s achievements in a dedicated Women's Building. Despite initial resistance from male organisers, Bertha's determination ensured that the Women's Building became a reality. She appointed Sophia Hayden, the first female graduate of MIT’s architecture program, to design the building. Hayden's Italian Renaissance-style palazzo was both an architectural and cultural statement, celebrating women's contributions in various fields.

The Women's Building was a showcase of female talent and innovation. It housed exhibits of art, literature, science, and industry, all produced by women. Bertha’s leadership was crucial in organising these displays, which included a library featuring 7,000 books by female authors and exhibitions of women’s inventions and artworks. The building also hosted conferences and lectures on topics ranging from women's education to social reform, attracting an audience of around 200,000 people.

Bertha's influence extended beyond the exposition. She was a vocal advocate for women’s rights and used her position to push for greater recognition of women’s contributions. Her work at the Exposition was a testament to her vision and commitment to gender equality, marking a significant step forward for women's visibility in the public sphere. 

It was in the lavish setting of the Palmer House Hotel, amid its garnet-draped chandeliers and opulent decor, that the humble brownie was born. Bertha, ever the visionary, commissioned the creation of a novel dessert for the Exposition. Her request was simple yet transformative: a confection smaller than a cake, yet more substantial than a cookie, something that could be neatly packed in a boxed lunch. Thus, the first brownie was created in the hotel's kitchens, topped with an apricot glaze and walnuts. Interestingly this same recipe is still served at the Palmer House hotel all these years later.

The brownie itself contained significant amounts of chocolate, butter and sugar as well as cake flour and eggs.

Comparative Historical Recipes

To provide a deeper historical context, let’s compare the original Palmer House brownie recipe with other early variations: As with all food history, there are often differing accountsand legends surrounding the origins of recipes.

1.Sears Catalogue Recipe (1897):

The 1897 Sears, Roebuck Catalogue featured an early reference to "brownies," though these were more like molasses candy shaped like elves, inspired by the popular characters from Palmer Cox's stories. This version did not include chocolate, highlighting an interesting divergence in the evolution of brownie recipes during that period. The recipe illustrates the early experimentation with sweet treats that eventually led to the chocolate brownie we know today​.

2. Bangor Brownies (1905):

A recipe published in the Boston Globe referred to as "Bangor Brownies" closely resembled modern brownies. This version was named after Bangor, Maine, where a local housewife allegedly is said to have invented brownies by accidentally omitting baking powder from a chocolate cake recipe, resulting in a dense, fudgy treat​.

3. Fannie Farmer's 1906 Boston Cooking-School Cook Book:

 This book featured a recipe for "Brownies," which included molasses and cocoa, differentiating it from the Palmer House version. This recipe marked one of the first appearances of brownies in printed cookbooks, showcasing a simpler, less indulgent take on the dessert.

4. Maria Willett Howard’s 1907 Recipe:

Howard’s version, found in "Lowney's Cook Book," included more chocolate and butter, aligning more closely with modern brownies. The evolution from Farmer's version to Howard’s recipe illustrates the increasing decadence in brownie recipes over time.

Dello Mano's  Pilgrimage to the Birthplace of Brownies

At Dello Mano, our passion for brownies led us on a remarkable pilgrimage to the very heart of brownie history – the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago. This journey was not merely a visit; it was a profound exploration of the roots of a beloved dessert, an immersion into the rich cultural and culinary heritage of this iconic establishment. The Palmer House: A Creative and Cultural Haven.

As we walked through the grand halls of the Palmer House lobby, we were transported back in time. The intricate designs, the opulent chandeliers, and the lush carpets – every detail exuded an aura of timeless elegance. The amazing gold doors at the entrance and the architectural art made us pinch ourselves as we entered.

Deb and Bien at the Palmer House - great to be here and experience the history firsthand!

We were there to explore for ourselves the home of the original brownie.

In order to make sure our investigation was thorough, we made appointments with the Palmer House Hotel Historian & PR Director, the late Ken Price, whose knowledge of the history of the hotel was astounding. We very fortunate to enjoy his amazing hospitality and the most informative meeting in the hotel's archive room.

Ken's profound love for the Palmer House was captivating, his enthusiasm palpable in every detail he shared.

We followed the meeting with a Ken's tour through the grand ballrooms and event spaces. The amazing chandeliers, purchased and brought from all around the world, coupled with Ken's enthusiasm created something that to this day remains breathtaking.

The Grand Ballroom and Celebrity Glamour Imagine standing in the grand ballroom, with its sparkling chandeliers casting a warm glow over the ornate decorations. This iconic space has been the backdrop for countless memorable events, from extravagant balls to intimate performances.

As we stood there, we could almost hear the echoes of music and laughter, the whispers of history that seemed to resonate through the walls.

We were told by Ken that it had been considered good luck to touch the urns as we moved up onto the platform above the ballroom. Since brownies were invented here, we made sure to do exactly that, hoping to capture some of the magic, history, and a little brownie good luck!

A Glimpse into the Past

Our journey took us to the very kitchen where the first brownies were crafted, a place steeped in history and tradition. The scent of chocolate and butter filled the air, evoking a sense of nostalgia. We had the incredible opportunity to interview the hotel’s chef, delving into the storied past and present of the Palmer House brownie. Standing in that historic kitchen, we felt a deep connection to the origins of this beloved treat.

A Sweet Exchange

In a moment of shared culinary passion, we exchanged our Dello Mano brownies with the Palmer House kitchen team. Standing together, we savored each other’s creations, celebrating the timeless delight that brownies bring. This exchange was more than just a tasting; it was a connection through history, a mutual appreciation of the art of brownie making.

A Personal Moment of Reflection

Bien and I ordered the brownie sundae and sat up in the balcony that overlooks the very grand and impressive central lobby. As we sat enjoying our brownie sundae, we had a surreal moment of reflection. Starting our brownie business at the Farmer's Market and now finding ourselves in this grand place, eating brownies in style, felt like a dream come true. It was a poignant reminder of how far we'd come and the beautiful journey that brought us here.

The Evolution of Brownies

​Around the turn of the century  a new wave of cooking schools emerged. These schools and their educators not only taught "home economics" but also promoted their ideas in magazines clubs and lecture tours. It is thought to be through the domestic science network and an increasing interest in cookbooks, that brownies became known across the United States.

Companies like The Hershey Company and Mars made technological advancements in their factories and subsequently developed abilities to make larger quantities and extend the shelf life of chocolate. This made chocolate more accessible and affordable  to the consumer. As chocolate became more readily available, recipes began to incorporate more cocoa and chocolate, enhancing the brownie’s flavor profile.

Innovations such as adding nuts, frosting, and other ingredients began to emerge, catering to diverse tastes and preferences. Techniques also evolved, with bakers experimenting with different baking times and temperatures to perfect the brownie texture​.

A little later, large food companies started promoting the idea of time saving in the kitchen. They promised busy housewives reduced preparation time and the opportunity to avoid the frustration of recipes going wrong. Several large companies played an important role in the development of cake and brownie mixes in the middle of the 20th century. They offered national distribution, sponsored cooking competitions and "bake off" events. 

Soon co-branding saw the food manufactureres team up with companies like Hersheys to promote brownie mixes, A 1965 Betty Crocker advertisment for Chocolate Fudge Brownie Mix explained the increased success rate for perfect brownies " With Betty Crocker, you always get chocolatey, chewy, candy bar good brownies made wtih all Hersheys cocoa"

By the 1980's there was a growing number of "latchkey" children and food companies capitalised by offering microwaveable brownies.

Expert Tips for Perfect Brownies

  • Use High-Quality Ingredients:
    The quality of your chocolate and butter will significantly impact the taste and texture of your brownies. Opt for premium chocolate and pure, unsalted butter for the best results.
  • Don’t Overmix the Batter:
    Overmixing can lead to tough brownies. Mix just until the ingredients are combined to maintain a tender texture.
  • Watch the Baking Time:
    Brownies can go from perfectly fudgy to overbaked in a matter of minutes.

    Check them a few minutes before the recommended baking time. A toothpick inserted should come out with a few moist crumbs. At Dello Mano we use the wobble test to check our brownies are at their baked best.
  • Know the difference between a fudgy and a cakey brownie.
    When it comes to brownies, texture is key, and understanding the difference between fudgy and cakey browniescan help you make the perfect choice for your taste.

    Fudgy Brownies:
    These are dense, rich, and intensely chocolatey. They have a moist, almost gooey center and a slightly chewy texture. To achieve this, use a higher fat-to-flour ratio, typically adding more butter or chocolate, and less flour. Adding minimal baking powder or baking soda helps maintain the dense texture.

    Cakey Brownies:
    These resemble a lighter, more airy cake. They have a fluffy crumb and a softer texture. This is achieved by using more flour and a leavening agent such as baking powder. Adding an extra egg can also introduce more air into the batter, giving the brownies a lift.
  • Let Them Cool Completely:
    It might be tempting to dive in immediately, but letting brownies cool completely ensures they set properly and are easier to cut. 
  • Experiment with Add-ins:
    Don’t be afraid to add nuts, chocolate chips, or swirls of caramel or peanut butter to create your own unique brownie.
