I followed other reviewers' suggestions and cut the sugar, but I went down to 1/4 cup, and then used 1/4 cup of applesauce & agave nectar mixed. I also subbed two egg whites for the egg, a soy and whole wheat flour blend for the flour, and used canola oil instead of butter. And you know what? This was still phenomenal - only without the saturated fat and blood sugar spike! Thank you for posting!

Made this for dinner with the in-laws. Everybody loved it. Hubby says make this again. I did add rasins. Otherwise followed the recipe. The ingredients are what you would have on hand nothing expensive or exotic but turns out YUMMMM! Thanks for posting this. It was great served warm from the oven with whipped cream & ice cream.

WOW! This is unbelievably delicious! I doubled the recipe and baked it in a 9x13 dish. It baked into a cake-like layered apple dish that cuts nicely into squares for serving. Wonderful and so easy -- thanks for sharing Oolala!

This recipe appeared in the NJ Bell phone company newsletter in Sept. 1972. I have been making it ever since and even won prizes for it. Simple ingredients and usually the only things I need are the apples.

Delicious!! Used 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar for the 1 cup sugar. Added 1/8 teaspoon nutmeg. Doubled the recipe to make in a 9 x 13 pan. Checked after 40 minutes and found I needed to add 1/2 cup apple cider, so the apples wouldn't dry out from baking. Checked in another 1/2 hour and all was done. Let it cool for 45 minutes and dug in. mmm....good!! Tried to mix the apples into the dough and couldn't get the job done, so decided to put the dough on top of the apples, like apple crisp, and bake. If you choose to try the apple crisp way, make sure the dough is sealed over the apples or the apples will dry out.

I like that this comes together in a snap with ingredients I almost always have in the house. I was lazy so instead of cutting my apples into pretty wedges, I just cut them into chunks and stirred everything together. I also used half white splenda and half splenda brown sugar with excellent results. Of course, this dessert was extra fab with big scoop of butter pecan ice cream on top. Thank you for posting!

This is very easy to make. I used my apple peeler/ slicer so all I had to do was quarter the apple pieces. This tastes so good. Mine baked in 30 minutes. I used my cast iron au gratin pan so that may be why. Thanks for the recipe.
