Last week’s gingerbread was great, don’t get me wrong. But this week’s ATF Gingerbread? Frickin’ amazing. I’ve been baking my way through All Cakes Considered for several months now and most have been good, some outstanding. This one may just be my favorite so far. I think I will bringing one of these to work sometime soon.
It didn’t start out pretty. This is what butter, a little brown sugar, dark beer, and molasses look like blended.
Kinda gross, huh? After adding flour, it turned into this beautiful mixture, though.
Did I mention beer? I’m not a beer drinker, but I like to taste a little of my husband’s now and again. I couldn’t resist trying this stout, and, for a beer, it was delicious. I do appreciate the complexities of beer, I just don’t like more than a few sips.
The house smelled divine while the gingerbread was cooking and as it cooled.
I was a little impatient and iced it before it was cool, so the icing melted a bit. That didn’t affect the taste, though. Om nom nom nom!
