There were two of us who tasted this and made determination. My 16 yr old DGD loved it. I thought it was a bit tart which surprised me with both caramel sauce and sugar in it. I would have liked it better if it had more of a apple crisp style topping I think. All in all it is good. Made for P.A.R.T.Y. 2011.

I cheated with this a bit & rather than doing the flour topping I topped mine with granola, a little cinnamon & a few dots of butter. Served with vanilla yoghurt for breakfast, this was fabulous. Not sure about the 4 servings though I used 2 smallish apples but still managed to eat the whole lot myself...:lol: Thanks Kitten!
