Ina's Outrageous Brownies were a favorite, so I finally got around to trying them. They are very moist and fall apart pretty easily. Usually when a brownie recipe says to refrigerate, I just ignore it because I don't care how pretty the slices are. This time, though, I had to refrigerate so they would keep their shape at all. I think these really are better made ahead. I won't make them often as they really do have a ridiculous amount of butter and chocolate, but I'm thinking they could be really good cut in chunks for ice cream.

In the mood for donuts, but not interested in frying, I tried these baked chocolate donuts. I was really excited about how these turned out! Unlike the plain baked donuts I'd tried where I liked the donut holes the best, here I liked the actual donut. The donut holes seemed to dry out a little. I tried the glaze in the recipe, a basic powdered sugar glaze and another chocolate glaze, and I liked the alternate chocolate glaze the best.
The donut recipe is available at the link above. Here's the chocolate glaze:
2 oz bittersweet chocolate
1 TB powdered sugar
1 TB butter
Melt chocolate and butter, stir in powdered sugar.
