From the Edmonds Cookery Book. The orginal recipe calls for blackberry jelly but use whatever flavour that you enjoy. I often use strawberry. Serve with icecream and/or cream. Jelly = jello.

This is really good! Even my kids liked it, and that gets 5 stars from me! I doubled the recipe, baked in an 11 x 7 pan, and baked for about 40 minutes. I used the Jell-O flavors I had on hand--wild berry and cherry, and also threw in some blackberries and raspberries that I had frozen a week earlier. Cooking the apples in water took about 10 minutes or so, then I just added the 2 Jell-O packets. Poured in the pan that I had lightly greased. The topping is delicious and buttery, too. Great with whipped cream. And the best part is, it's probably all ingredients you have on hand. Thanks Jewelies!

This was simple, yet delicious. The gelatin gives this a beautiful hue and a slightly sweet taste. This was so incredibly easy - peeling the apples was the only real chore here, and I only needed 4 small apples. My husband already wants me to make this again, and we only just ate it 5 minutes ago. :)

To begin with for the US members - blackberry jelly is blackberry jello and the 50 grams comes to 2 oz as best I can tell or 1/4 C butter. I couldn't find the blackberry jello at my store so I used raspberry. It was wonderfuL! I'm thinking that this would be a great with berries and the berry jello too or maybe cranberry jello with the apples. Yum! I served it with vanilla ice cream while it was warm which was just right. Next time I will try sugar free jello and Sugar twin brown sugar substitute for a sugar free version.
