Absolutely delicious!!! Lasted all of 10 minutes in my house! Needed about 50 minutes in my oven though. I did substitute mixed spice for the ground cloves (only cos I didn't have any) and I sprinkled Demerara sugar over it before baking just to give it a crunchy top. - 19 Oct 2013
Watch the sugar content as I found it over sweet even though I cut the sugar by 30g. My apple sauce was made with dessert apples (no sugar added) which is why I reduced the sugar, but alas still too sweet. - 27 Sep 2015
