This week we made a gorgeous gingerbread thanks to Heather of Sherry Trifle. I made this to feed the troops on our moving day yesterday. Nothing like a chocolate fix in the midst of a hard morning's work!
It was an absolute breeze to whip up but I ended up with a slightly different result than intended because I misread the recipe! I was most of the way through when the recipe said to stir through the chopped chocolate. Woops! I melted all the chocolate instead of just 2 ounces. I added it all anyway and hoped for the best.
I also changed the icing, just melting the chocolate and butter together and adding enough icing sugar to get the consistency right.
The taste test ...
Oh. My. God. This was incredible! If this was a mistake I want to make many, many more of them! The end result was moist, rich and almost fudgy right in the middle and the fresh ginger gave it a wonderful depth of flavour (dark chocolate covered ginger is one of my favourite treats!).
This is probably in my top 3 Dorie recipes so far. Thanks Heather!
