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
I had already prepared my apple so just used this recipe for the topping.....it tasted great BUT if I wanted apple with cake on top I would hav searched for just that, it was not a crumble AT ALL but my hubby did hav a second helping so not all bad I guess..... - 07 Nov 2011
