Apple Gingerbread Cobbler

"Nicely spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger, this delicious cobbler is one of my family's favorites," writes Edie DeSpain of Logan, Utah. "It is easy to prepare...and the recipe has been in my family for years."

    Too much water with the apples, will use 1/2c next time. Too much molasses in cake, it was heavy and more of a spice cake than gingerbread. I like the idea of a gingerbread cobbler but will try to blend this recipe with a more traditional gingerbread cake.
