ABOUT American Whole Wheat walnut Brownies RECIPE

While reading about fudge brownie recipe with cocoa powder, I found some interesting facts. Just like many other recipes, the fact that who invented the brownie recipe is not clear. Some say that some chef accidentally made the brownie recipe, whereas he intended to make cookies. And some talk about a housewife in Maine. However, most of the evidence points towards Palmer house hotel in Chicago. Hence we call this gooey brownie recipe to be American.
