    Used different ingredients. I added a bit of water to the apples as I like it saucy.  -  07 Aug 2008


    Sorry but I have to agree with some of the previous comments. This was WAY too sweet! I would recommend you half the amount of brown sugar in the apples and use only 100g of caster sugar in the topping. I wasnt too sure about the topping as most of the reviews were 'for' it I gave it a go and I have to say i'd rather have a proper crumble. Perhaps if it hadn't been too sweet it may have been more of a hit. Even my hubby didnt eat it and he loves apple pie/crumble and will usually eat anything that I cook! Cooked on 140C in a fan oven (160 conventional) for 40 minutes and it was cooked perfectly, apples were lovely and soft, just too sweet! Will not make again though  -  28 Aug 2011
