Spiced Apple Gingerbread Recipe

This nicely spiced caked, with chunks of apple and a hint of ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg, always wins raves. I like it best served warm with a dollop of whipped topping. It freezes well, too. —Pam Blockey of Bozeman, Montana

"Used apples that I canned after pressing the cider from them. Doubled the spices, sub. splenda for the sugar and it was terrific. will make often."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 24, 2010

"I made two kinds of gingerbread for my 1-2 grade class. I thought the standard box mix would be prefered to this stronger flavor, apple filled recipe. I couldn't have been more wrong. They gobbled it up and asked for more! I might cut back on the ginger a little so I can taste the other spices more, but it is definitely going to be a regular for us."
