  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter + more for greasing the pan
  • 2/3 cup dark chocolate
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup unbleached white flour or spelt flour
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa or cacao powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • Butter an 8 × 8 inch square baking dish. Line the dish with parchment paper, with some overlap on the sides. Butter the bottom of the parchment paper. Preheat an oven to 325°F.

  • In a medium saucepan, melt together the chocolate and butter over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally until smooth. Remove from heat and beat in the sugar, flour, cocoa or cacao, eggs, fresh ginger, vanilla, nutmeg, ground ginger, sea salt and ground cloves.

  • Transfer to the prepared dish and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Let the brownies in the dish cool for 10 minutes, lift out with the parchment paper, and cool for another 15 minutes on a wire rack. Cut into squares and serve.

Brownies with ginger! Brilliant. I'll have to give this a try.

Perhaps we'll all have time for Martha Stewart-style presentation when we're retired!

Hi Lisa, These sound delicious and I'd like to make them.Does the 2/3 cup of chocolate refer to chocolate chips? I'm used to seeing chocolate by weight, unless it is chocolate chips. Thanks! Peace, Stephanie

Lisa Turner said...

Hi Stephanie; You can use chocolate chips or crush up some fine dark chocolate for these brownies. I included carob chips here, but that is optional.

Stephanie said...

Thanks, Lisa. 1 cup of chocolate chips weighs 6 ounces, so do I use 4 ounces of chocolate? I definitely prefer using fine, organic dark chocolate. Peace, Stephanie

Lisa Turner said...

Hi again Stephanie. 4 ounces should work fine.
