I love surprises. I love surprises that involve sugar and that are so stinkin’ good to eat.
A surprise you might ask?
Well, when making my shopping list, I became a bit doubtful with the pairing of ginger and chocolate. Do those flavors really go together? It just seemed weird to combine fresh, chopped ginger and chocolate chips.
It just goes to show that I should never be judgemental; I LOVED it!
Did I tell you that I LOVED it?
My adaptations of the recipe:
-I omitted the ginger in the syrup; I couldn’t find it in the grocery store.
-I substituted 2/3 cup potato starch, 2/3 cup brown rice flour and 2/3 cup tapioca flour for the all purpose flour(to make it Gluten Free) and I added 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
-I eliminated the ganache on top; I did make the icing, and it was YUMMY, but I prefer the cake plain, with a simple dusting of powdered sugar.
To all of my friends, family and fellow bloggers….
MAKE THIS, BAKE THIS and EAT THIS!!
Until next week’s World Peace Cookies, Bake On!
