Tuesdays With Dorie ~ Fresh Ginger & Chocolate Gingerbread


Laurie of Quirky Cupcake formed Tuesdays With Dorie as a form of accountability for baking at least once a week using the cookbook, Baking: From My Home to Yours by Dorie Greenspan.

This week Heather of Sherry Trifle chose Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread on page 212. I couldn't wait to try this recipe. Chocolate and gingerbread are both favorites around here. We are a bit limited on gourmet as well as a few other things ingredients wise around here, especially mid winter so I did make a few substitutions using what I had on hand and hubby still gave it 2 thumbs up!

I didn't have any bittersweet chocolate so I used semi-sweet instead. I also used chips instead of shaved and that was a great bonus on the bites of chocolate surprise. I couldn't get ahold of any of the chopped ginger in syrup either so opted out of it.



final blog signature.
