  2. Just tasted it (overnight cooling as was quite soft on coming out! Think the amount of apples perhaps makes it squidgy in the middle. But yum yum!! I also think I would cut back the sugar, on a personal preference taste thing. Did the same with a crumble last week for a dinner party and got great reviews!! Move over, Jamie et al…..

  3. I’m afraid its a eat with a fork type cake especially good with a large dollop of cream. Adjust the sugar if you have sweeter apples ours are quite tart cookers and the kids have a sweet tooth! It’s a good way to get Percy to eat fruit!
