Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread

This weeks Tuesdays with Dorie recipe is Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread. Gingerbread is not something that I make very often and then it is usually in the form of cookies at Christmas. I can't remember ever having chocolate with it, just whipped cream or a lemon sauce. I love chocolate so I thought that this might be a great combination. Dorie got it right as usual. This is a very good gingerbread. It was spicy but not overly so, and the chocolate was a nice compliment to its taste and texture.

I baked this in an 8x8 square pan and as Dorie suggested didn't put in all the batter. I had enough batter left over to fill a mini loaf pan. I frosted the larger cake with the chocolate icing and left the smaller one plain. I cut the larger cake into 16 snack size pieces. Both ways were very tasty. The mini ones would make cute gifts.

Thanks to Heather of Sherry Trifle for choosing another winning recipe.
