quick and easy chocolate-gingerbread

IMG_6331

As in very quick and easy. As in the fastest quick bread I've ever made 'quick & easy'.
I probably should have posted this a while back for the holiday season. And I think Trader Joe's will stop carrying this for the season soon.
But saw these photos sitting in the archives and said "why not post it--someone out there will dig it".
Remember what I did with the gingerbread mix last year? The gingerbread cupcakes with white chocolate ganache frosting? Tres fab.
Did you also know that I made a batch of waffles with this box mix too? Pretty good. No photos on that one. If you do try it, use fresh whipped cream, not syrup--you already knew that didn't you?

Easy peasy. Follow box directions, pour in 1/2 the batter into greased loaf pan, put down as much or as little chocolate as you like, then pour remaining batter on top and bake according to box directions.

  2. I've never been a gingerbread fan. But now I know what the problem was - there wasn't chocolate! This looks incredible with the melty chocolate in the middle.

  13. Waah! I've said it before and I'll whine it again - I miss Trader Joe's! It's just as well, given how easy it is to make this scrumptious cake - a very dangerous proposition given recent holiday eating events.

    What other goodies are hiding in your photo archives? ;-)

  14. I'm just going to put fresh whipped cream on my waffles instead of syrup from now on. It really seems like the right thing to do.

    As does making this ASAP. Get me to a trader joe's!
