Chocolate Gingerbread recipe

Gingerbread has never been my favorite holiday treat, but adding chocolate to the batter has changed the way I think about gingerbread. The combination of cocoa and warm spices is really quite nice.


  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

• Preheat oven to 350°F.
• Butter an 8-inch square baking dish and set aside.
• In a medium bowl, whisk together cocoa, flour, cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
• In a large bowl, whisk together butter, brown sugar, molasses, egg, sour cream, and vanilla until smooth.
• Add flour mixture and stir just until moistened, being careful not to overmix. Stir in chocolate chips.
• Scrape batter into prepared pan and smooth top.
• Bake for 28 to 32 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
• Transfer pan to a wire rack and let cool completely. Serve directly from dish.
