In a medium bowl, mix together the Cheddar cheese, ricotta cheese, egg, caster sugar and almond extract. Spread 1 1/2 tins of apple filling in the bottom of a 20x30cm baking dish. Layer half of the lasagne sheets on top. Spread the cheese mixture over the lasagne. Top with the remaining lasagne sheets and spread with the remaining apple filling.
In a small bowl, stir together the flour, 6 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar, oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix in margarine until the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle over the apple filling.
Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven. Cool for 15 minutes. While the lasagne cools, stir together the soured cream and 5 tablespoons dark brown soft sugar. To serve, cut into squares and top with soured cream as a garnish.
