This weeks Dorie recipe was chosen by the lovely Clivia of Bubie's Little Baker. Her blog title makes me smile, because I had a Bubbie and I've become her little baker, too.
Clivia chose Ginger Jazzed Brownies, which I must have flipped past at least a dozen times in the past few years. It never really appealed to me, which is strange because I love ginger and I love brownies. Who knew that they could taste so fabulous together!? The brownies are fudgy, a little cakey, and very chocolatey...while the ginger spice and heat comes through at the end. I nearly tripled the amount of ginger the recipe called for, because I knew some of it would bake out in the process. I think I acheived a good balance of chocolate and heat - not too spicy, but just enough so that you know it's something special!
