the family really enjoyed this for dessert tonight (though I only had a very thin slice I was pleased with the ovall taste - I rarely eat dessert - it was very light and had good taste though still sweet to me). I baked a 170C fan forced oven for 55 minutes but would consider lowering temperature a notch or cooking for less time but that is my oven. The only other change I made was to make up a mix of cinnamon and sugar and sprinkle over the top of the apples before putting in the oven. This is also the first cake recipe I have dne were you add the flour mix and then add the liquid and I really think if you grease and fully line your pan you don't need the flour.
