    Simple to make and deee..lush...ussss!!!  -  27 Oct 2013


    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
