Altered ingredient amounts. Sugar not listed in ingredients but is in Prep. As a general rule you use the same amount (4oz in this instance) of sugar as butter/syrup. You can use granulated, soft brown, golden - each will give a slightly different taste. - 25 Sep 2010


This was a very quick and easy recipe however my lot were not too keen on 'grated' apples preferring them pre-cooked as in another recipe I tried. That said, they ate them all! Thanks for the recipe😃 - 15 Oct 2013


Great for using up any apples. I added 2 oz of brown sugar and about the same amount of sultanas. - 24 Sep 2011
