Sorry, this was disappointing for me and my family. Waaay! too sweet, and that's after reducing sugar to 1/2 cup! I didn't get the purpose of the batter on the apples...turned into a very sweet, loose custard. I thought it would be more cakey. Topping was okay. I used 5 large Granny Smith apples. Liked the "idea" of this dessert and LOVED the smell of the apples and spices in the house (hence the 1 star). Won't be making this again, unless I completely redo it. Too bad :(
Love this desert. Makes the house smell wonderful when cookin even in crockpot. Found this recipe in Tast of Home back in 98 and have been makin it since. Thanx for posting so everyone knows how great it is. I make the recipe exactly as written, never felt the need to change a thing, it is delicious.
Ultimate comfort food dessert. Had to omit the nuts. Apples & spice very fragrant. Finished cooking sooner than expected.Delicious! Thanks for posting! I will treasure this one.
