Tuesdays with Dorie | Fresh Ginger Chocolate Gingerbread

twd-gingerbread-cake-0109

Heather of Sherry Trifle is the Tuesday with Dorie (TWD) host this week and she picked a very refreshing dessert, the Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread.   I have always thought about making gingerbread or gingerbread cookies with fresh ginger but never have.  I am so glad Dorie created this recipe, it is really lovely.

The recipe calls for fresh ginger, dried ginger and stem ginger (I could not find so I used candied baking ginger) as well as cloves and cinnamon, lucky for us, I still had some of that lovely cinnamon bark so I used that.  In addition to molasses (which I forgot how much I liked until I licked the spoon)  there is melted bittersweet chocolate and pieces of chocolate mixed into the batter.  I was suppose to frost the finished gingerbread with more chocolate but opted to keep it simple and on the light side.  Overall, we like it as it is moist, spicy, light and really refreshing.  Perfect after a nice meal or as a simple afternoon snack with a nice cup of espresso.

Thank you Heather for hosting!

This gingerbread is also the dessert for our Recession/Depression dinner series.
