Who Invented the Brownie?
Bertha Palmer's Brownie Recipe
Presented by The Historical Society of Sarasota County
Legend has it that this rich yet dainty sweet was invented at the behest of Mrs. Potter Palmer who desired a "Ladies Desert" neater to eat than pie to be used in box lunches at the Women's Building at the 1893 Columbian Exposition. Bertha headed the Board of Lady Managers for the World's Fair, and the Palmer House was presented to her by her husband, Potter Palmer, as a wedding gift after their marriage in 1870, so the chiefs were delighted to oblige. These are still served today at the Palmer House Hilton in Chicago.
