Apple Cake Top

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by JustJanS

This is a really old family favourite that my mum often made. Now I make it! It's OK with tinned pie apples (but home cooked are best), it's good over stewed apricots, peaches, nectarines, quinces, and it's nice to mix stewed rhubarb in with the apple when it's available.

I made this for dessert the other night. Cake top was light and fluffy. Served it with whipped topping. Very good!
