This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie was chosen by Heather of Sherry Trifle, she chose Dorie’s Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread which is located on page 212 of Baking: From My Home to Yours. This weeks recipe actually intrigued me. I don’t think that I have ever had chocolate and ginger together in one dessert, but I might be mistaken.
Making this recipe was super easy and I actually didn’t have any problems. I ended up baking the gingerbread in an 8x8x3 baking pan and it turned out fantastic. I love the way my apartment smelled when it was baking. While baking this I was also making three different types of Italian Buttercream for my Wilton Course 3 Final cake. Which is also the reason why I haven’t been posting that much this past week. I have been trying to get all of the flowers, fondant, cake, and buttercream made that I haven’t had any real blogging time. Sorry
Back to the ginger cake, I loved the cake portion but I wasn’t thrilled when the chocolate icing on top. It was okay. Maybe I already sugared myself out by making sure the flavors were right in the different buttercreams by the time I tried the ginger cake. I will give it another try soon to see if I was just having an off chocolate day 🙂
Cruise on over to Heather’s site to pick up the recipe.
