gingerbread cake

We had our book group holiday potluck tonight, so I decided to try out a new cake recipe. Here’s the Chocolate-Covered Gingerbread Cake from Bon Appetit:

It was pretty moist and delicious. The chocolate ganache was pretty darn yummy and paired nicely with the gingerbread. Everyone seemed to like it, and I’d definitely make it again!

    Looks delicious! Gotta loved candied ginger. Is that what it is on top? I use an epicurious recipe for chocolate chip cookies that have chopped crystallized ginger in them, and people can’t get enough. They keep asking me what is that little extra thing in their cookie that tastes so darned good? Chocolate and ginger go sooo well together!

    Gingerbread cake is one of my favorite cakes– I never had it with chocolate ganache before, but that picture makes me drool. I think I’ll have to make some for the holidays, too. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

    Oh, that looks tasty! That looks like candied ginger on top, but I bet candied orange peel would be good too, and a nice contrast to the ginger in the cake.
