Chocolate Gingerbread Cake


Every year I give myself permission to try a fabulous new recipe for our Baby Jesus Birthday cake.  
This year I decided on the cover feature from Southern Living magazine:  Chocolate Gingerbread Cake.


Each layer of this cake is elevated to a higher level of deliciousness.
The cake is swimming with melted chocolate chips, molasses and classic gingerbread spices.


The chocolate ganache filling is made with semi-sweet chocolate and sweetened condensed milk.
Top that with sweet and crunchy toffee bits.


Add another layer of cake and repeat.


This ultra delicious silky sweet cake is topped with whipped cream and garnished with gingerbread cookies.


You can find the complete recipe over at Southern Living and meet Lynn Brown, the recipe contest winner! 
 Enjoy!
