this was amazing! the only slight changes i made was to chop up two apples with a tablespoon of sugar, dash of cinnamon and stew them till soft in a saucepan beforehand since i didnt have apple filling and i like my apples very soft. plus i popped the dish under the grill for a minute to crisp and brown the top. thankyou for a great recipe. - 22 Jan 2011


this was DELICIOUS! could of done with some milk, but i wasn't bothered to measure the butter, didn't add the dissected coconut and no cinnamon .... but turned out exceptional. - 19 Apr 2014
