Had company the other day & this wonderfully delicious casserole was served as a dessert/snack in the late morning! Couldn't have been better, & the 4 of us ate most of it in one sitting! I must preferred it without the maple syrup, but the others were happy campers with that topping! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Stars recipe tag]
I made a 1/2 recipe as a dessert for the DM and DS (couldn't in my wildest dreams thinks of this as a breakfast dish though the DM would love it to be). I did sub sultanas for the raisings and for dietary reasons used a sugar substitute and served with some vanilla yoghurt but will serve the other half tonight with a sugar free maple syrup. Thank you weekend cooker for a lovely dessert that the DM and DS thoroughly enjoyed, made for Everyday A Holiday.
So good!!! I made 1/4 of the recipe, which would serve 2 without a problem. I used a Granny Smith Apple and think next time I would use a less tart apple due to the use of the OJ(which was the non concentrated type), but that was my fault for not thinking about the two. Or, since I usually have Granny Smith apples on hand, not use the OJ and use milk instead. Thanks for sharing the recipe. Made for the Best of 2011!!!
