Lowney's Cook Book

When you think of tempting chocolate treats, what comes to mind? Is it maybe… a brownie? The first known use of the word "brownie" for a dessert is in the 1896 edition of the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book by Fannie Farmer. But that recipe was for little molasses cakes, not chocolate. It wasn't until the 1906 version of Farmer's cook book that a chocolate brownie with a cake-like texture was featured. Chocolate brownies quickly gained in popularity across the United States.

And then came Lowney's Brownies.
