Has anyone actually tried this recipe? There is way too much liquid in it! I baked it in a jelly roll pan for 60 minutes and it was still looser than a custard. The flavor was delicious, though, so we ate it with a spoon. [Editor's Note: recipe was updated as a result of these comments]

Great brownies. Lots of persimmon flavor, dense, chewy and just sweet enough. The family has deemed this a shareable recipe and we'll make it often. Thanks to LoveToCook for the recipe.
