TWD: Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread

have to start implementing better planning for TWD. As it is, I've been leaving it for the day before and then something gets scheduled and I don't feel like baking at the end of the day. This is why I missed last week. I had all of the ingredients too. Here I am again, posting last minute. So that will be a goal for the new year. To start baking the weekly selections ahead of time, leaving me plenty of time to post about it.

I have to admit that I wasn't overly excited about this week's selection. I'm not a huge fan of gingerbread, although I am a fan of ginger. Love it! Gingerbread cookies are okay, but I can easily pass them by. But I already missed last week and I don't want to get too far behind, so on with the show.

I was really surprised at how light the batter was. It was like whipped cream - smooth, light & fluffy.

And the end result wasn't any different. Very light and moist. Oh, and chocolate + gingerbread = yum. I really like this cake. It was very easy to make too. Dorie, I will never doubt you again.

We can thank Heather of Sherry Trifle for this week's selection. And to think I almost passed on this one. Thanks Heather! You can find the recipe on her site and on p. 212 in The Book. Read about what other bloggers are doing here.

Next week: World Peace Cookies

I'm glad you got to give it a try. I LOVED it. I was really not expecting to enjoy it as much as I did, and now I can't wait to try it again. Yours looks fantastic.
