Cook's Notes

Melt the chocolate in a bowl over simmering water or in a microwave. A squeeze bottle is an easy way to drizzle chocolate over the cake batter.

    That little first grader I made this for in 2003 stands 6 foot 6 inches today. He loved this gingerbread with a glass of milk. Calcium is the single nutrient most likely to be missing from the American diet. Guess what! I enjoyed it with a glass of milk too. Super easy! Super delicios!

    This is the first of many many recipes from Martha Stewart that was terrible. I can not recommend this. It tastes bad!

    I was so disappointed with this recipe. Neither my husband nor I could finish our slices...way too much molasses.
