Sometimes at work with most of my focus on design, development and marketing, I sometimes forget that it's supposed to be a fun and lighthearted thing I'm doing. I mean we are talking about baking brownies, right? That's why I wanted to write about something fun today - so I decided to research fun facts about brownies. I was surprised at some of the facts I found, especially how the brownie was created. Who knew?! Hope you enjoy :)

  1. brownies There are three myths about the creation of brownies. #1, a chef accidentally added melted chocolate to biscuit dough. #2, a cook forgot to add flour to the batter. And #3 and most popular, a housewife did not have baking powder and improvised with this new treat. It was said that she was baking for guests and decided to service these "flattened" cakes to them. 
  2. The classic brownie consists of only butter, sugar, chocolate, eggs and flour. Unsweetened chocolate is normally used so more sugar is required to balance the bitterness.
  3. Fudgy brownies have minimum flour and no baking powder at all. Melting the butter rather than creaming it will the sugar yields a denser, fudgier outcome.
  4. Cakelike brownies contain less butter and more flour than fudgy brownies as well as a little baking powder. The softened butter is creamed with the sugar rather than melted with the chocolate. Creaming incorporates air into the mixture which causes the brownies to rise higher.
  5. Chewy Brownies get their chewyness from adding in extra egg and a combination of different chocolates (semi-sweet and unsweetened). Put the two together with cocoa powder and the result is a rich, chewy brownie.
  6. Blondie brownies are made with brown sugar, butter and eggs, but no chocolate and typically have a cakelike texture. 
  7. Brownies are considered a "comfort food" where, when eaten, traditionally provides a nostalgic or sometimes sentimental feeling to the person eating it. 
  8. Here is a list from the Food Network on 50 different kinds of brownies you can bake at home including flourless, butterless and low-fat versions.
  9. Brownies have thier own holiday! National Brownie Day is on December 8th this year.
  10. Dictionary definition #1 of "brownie" is a tiny, fanciful, good-natured elf who secretly helps at nightDictionary definition #2 of "brownie" is a small, chewy cakelike cookie, usually made with chocolate. Put #1 and #2 together and you get Fairytale Brownies
