It started with such promise. In the rain, a few doors down from the subway on Lexington Avenue on the Upper East Side, I spotted a small sandwich board on the sidewalk that advertised baked goods. I went in and it smelled, well, like a bakery, one of my favorite shop aromas. Baked doughnuts! I had to try some. The place is Baked by Butterfield.
The doughnut is as described. I got a chocolate frosted. The entire doughnut was sticky from a sugar glaze, and topped with decent chocolate frosting. The doughnut, itself, was less tasty. Apparently, I prefer fried to baked when it comes to doughnuts.

I bought a couple of round, doughnut-shaped cakes, too. The double, or should it be triple, chocolate cake is a chocolate cake with chocolate frosting and little bits of something crunchy on top. The cake was a bit dry, but otherwise, yummy.
