How to Make Chocolate Gingerbread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325. Butter an 8 inch square pan. Mix flour, ginger, baking powder, salt, pepper and cloves in a medium bowl. Stir in brown sugar. Melt the butter in the water in small pan over medium heat. Pour the butter mixture into the dry ingredients, stirring until smooth. Add the molasses and egg, stirring until just blended.
