This week's Tuesday with Dorie features a Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread, chosen by Heather of Sherry Trifle. I have made gingerbread once before, but not a luxe chocolate version like this one.
This gingerbread contains ground ginger, fresh grated ginger and stem ginger (or in my case, glace ginger). It also contains chocolate on the outside and chocolate on the inside - what more could a girl want?
Here is my uniced gingerbread waiting patiently on the cooling rack:
And here it is again with its handsome shiny coat of real chocolate icing, with the added depth of coffee:
This was rich, adult-tasting and delicious. The tang of the ginger was a perfect foil for the rich depths of the dark chocolate - although you are talking to a girl who loves chocolate coated ginger, and receives it as a gift for every birthday and at Christmas.
