TWD- Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Ginerbread Cake




This week's TWD recipe was Chocolate Gingerbread Cake. I made the cake and took it to one of my friends who recently had a baby. I also made one cupcake so Brandon and I could try it. I really liked this recipe. I LOVE ginger, but this was my first time to use fresh ginger.

Great strategic thinking to keep out a cupcake for yourself. I thought it was cool how the fresh ginger and sugar made a syrup - I'd never done that before either.

Looks terrific. I loved this recipe and I'm sad it's all gone. I'm sure your lucky friend enjoyed it.
