The word "brownie" was first officially printed in 1896 in the Boston Cooking-School Cook Book. A baker baked little molasses cakes individually in tin molds. By 1907, the brownie was well established in a recognizable form, appearing in Lowney's Cook Book by Maria Willet Howard as an adaptation of the Boston Cooking School recipe for a "Bangor Brownie." It added an extra egg and an additional square of chocolate, creating a richer, fudgier dessert. The name "Bangor Brownie" appears to come from the town of Bangor, Maine.
