I spotted this Pumpkin Brownie ($3) at Fat Witch Bakery inside Chelsea Market one afternoon. Unlike most their brownies, this seasonal creation features only a sliver of the bakery's signature buttery chocolate brownie under a thick layer of pumpkin cake. The sweet and soft cake is cinnamony and moist, gently spiced. It's more akin to a pumpkin cake with only a whisper of chocolate, than it is to our general understanding of a brownie. Regardless, it's certainly a sweet that's easy to love. Take note, 5:00-7:00pm on weekdays are "witching hours"—half off all unwrapped brownies!
