OMG!!! This was delicious!! I followed the recipe exactly as written and have been enjoying it as a morning coffee cake rather than a dessert, lol!!! The first day I had a warm piece with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. I just love the topping and the apples add moisture to the ginger bread. Thanks for sharing. Made for Photo Swap!!
