4 oz, (1/2 cup)
¼ cup(s), finely chopped
Packed brown sugar
1 large egg(s)
- Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 5 x 9-inch loaf pan with nonstick spray.
- Whisk together the flour, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Stir in the chocolate chips and crystallized ginger. Whisk together the molasses, brown sugar, oil, and egg in a medium bowl. Whisk in the hot water until blended. Add the molasses mixture to the flour mixture; stir until well blended.
- Pour the batter into the pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 50 minutes. Let cool in the pan on a rack 15 minutes. Remove the bread from the pan and let cool completely on the rack. Yields 1/16 of loaf per serving.
