National Brownie Day
Today is a yummy day for those who love the gooey, chocolatey brownies. This day started in 1893 in Chicago at the Palmer House Hotel. The owner’s wife was hosting a group of ladies and requested a small cake-like delicacy. The very first brownie had walnuts and was topped with an apricot glaze. At the time it was not referred to as a brownie, that name came some years later.
