Did you know brownies originated in the early 20th century? Some think Fannie Farmer was the creator of the recipe, and some say a forgetful housewife left the baking powder out of her cake recipebut no one knows for sure. What everyone can agree on: brownies are a popular and easy dessert table idea. To me, the chewy, flavorful bites seem especially suited to summer and fall birthday parties. This Blondie Brownie is a rift on the more familiar version. Serve it fresh and warm from the oven with ice cream or make it ahead and enjoy it at room temperature. Brownies also make a great lunch-box surprise. Any way you serve brownies, they’re sure to be a hit!
