Our brownie has evolved since the beginning of Jenna Rae Cakes. What started as a sky-high double layered brownie enough to share with at least one more person has transformed a few times to bring us to where we are today.
When we were creating our brownies, we always wanted to have at least one layer of super thick, rich, fudgy brownie for you to indulge in. We would add fudge, marshmallow or browned butter frosting in between the layers and top with delicious flavour additions to create a unique flavour of brownie. Truth be told, our brownie was great, but we started to feel like there had to be a better way to jampack flavours into a treat that would be easier to eat while still being similar to a brownie.
We began thinking of the delicious squares we’ve all come to know and love from our childhood. We can all remember going to family gatherings where our parents and relatives would whip up a tasty bar to cut up into bite-sized pieces for everyone to enjoy. Dainty trays at Christmas were always filled with Nanaimo Bar and other decadent flavours put into bar form. With these memories flooding back, we knew Party Squares were the perfect replacement for our brownie.
Our team of talented bakers began creating mouth-watering flavour combinations in Party Square form, often still incorporating a brownie or blondie layer as an ode to our original brownie that graced the JRC menu for many years. Now, each week at Academy, we feature a flavour of Party Square. Some of our most recent featured flavours have included Chocolate Chip Banana Bread with Milk Chocolate Fudge, Cookie Dough Brownie, Nanaimo Bar Brownie, Cotton Candy Blondie, Red Velvet, Peanut Butter Marshmallow Square, Sticky Coconut Brownie and more!
The creative flavours will only continue to grow as we expand into new seasons at JRC and our entire team is already dreaming up Party Squares for the rest of the year using the flavours you’re most excited to see on our menu as the year progresses including lemon, pumpkin and candy cane.
