New-York Historical Society’s Recipe of the Week: Chocolate Brownies

From a book of recipes, probably American, compiled by an unidentified person during the early 1900’s. Most of the recipes are for desserts, breads, and pastries. We don’t yet know what the “Delano” refers to next to the name.

1/2 cup butter
2 squares of chocolate
1/2 cup flour
