TWD - Fresh Ginger & Chocolate Gingerbread
This week's recipe was chosen by Heather of Sherry Trifle. Her blog will have the full recipe.
Let's call this the cake that everyone liked, but no one ate. In this house, it's not often that any dessert gets thrown out, but nearly half of this cake had to be tossed. It seemed that by the next day, this rich, moist cake had turned very dry. I, personally, think there was too much chocolate in it. It wasn't too chocolately in taste, but all that chopped chocolate seemed to have sucked the moisture out of the cake.
As well, while everyone else said they enjoyed the ginger, I found it overwhelming. I love a good ginger snap, but this cake seemed to have overdosed my taste buds.
Ah, well. Wait for next week when the fight for last World Peace Cookie almost starts a war in my kitchen!
