TWD: Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread

Its Tuesday again, and that means its time for yet another Tuesday with Dorie post! Out of all the cookbooks that I own, that is without a doubt, hands down, my most used one and its thanks, in no small part, to the efforts of this group. This week, the chosen recipe is Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread.

Like so many recipes that I get to make as part of the TWD group, this is probably one that I wouldn't have chosen on my own. Yet, many times after making these recipes, I come to realize what I would have missed out on. This was another one of those.

The chocolate and ginger combination worked really well here, with the sweetness of the chocolate icing helping to tone down the tang of the ginger. I did, however, choose to leave out the crystallized stem ginger as I was afraid it would be too "gingery". I didn't miss it, but fans of ginger may want to throw them in for that added kick!
