Two words: crazy good. Heather of Sherry Trifle chose Fresh Ginger and Chocolate Gingerbread for our Tuesdays with Dorie recipe this week. For my gingerbread I chose to leave off the chocolate glaze.
I know. I left off the chocolate?! Yes. In this case, I did. I also made mini cakes as you can see, for cute little personal servings. The reason I left off the chocolate glaze was simply because I wanted to see what this combination would be like.
It may seem like an odd combination, bananas and gingerbread, but it is just so good. You really have to try this some time. I was inspired by Peabody to top make the mini cakes topped with good vanilla ice cream and caramel sauce (and you really ought to follow that link and see why). All together, this is one surprisingly light and still delicious and sweet treat. The only other change I made to the original recipe was to leave out the stem ginger since that was no where to be found at our grocery store.
I will definitely make this recipe again since I love the chocolate and ginger combination. Make sure to see how everyone else's gingerbread came out by going to the Tuesdays with Dorie blogroll!
