Celebrated every year on December 8.
Brownies can be categorized as bar-cookies.
A dense shallow cake is made in a tin
and when baked sliced into bars or squares.
Traditionally brownies are made with chocolate.
Currently also many versions with just vanilla flavor or many other variants have become popular as “brownies” even when the color didn’t match their names anymore.
The first-known mention of the word “brownie” in written word for a baked dessert appeared in “the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book” by Fannie Farmer printed in 1896.
