I've made this twice. But I agree with a previous review, 4 apples is no where near enough.I used small apples from our single tree in the yard. I had to have cut up at least 10. We've still got plenty of apples on the tree. I will make this again and I'll weigh the cutup apples next time, and either update this review or write another one. Aside from the apple quantity, I didn't change anything else and it's come out very good both times.
Honestly? To make this work, you'd have to make so many changes it would be a different recipe. No offense, but this was terrible. Not enough apple for a 9X 13 pan, not enough butter/oil to make a "crisp." There should be less sugar and more cinnamon. Sorry, but it failed.
Following the recommendations of others I put more sugar in the topping and less in with the fruit (I used black currants and strawberries with the apple), and added some extra oil to the crust (no margarine). I wish I had added some cinnamon too, but all in all this was really good and really simple! Thanks so much for posting.
I added more butter while mixing the oats so it'll be crunchy and will not fall all over when it's ready for serve. It's so simple and my family love it, thanks!
Good but a few things. 1. Oil your baking dish. 2. I added more margarine or else I don't think it would of tasted quite as good. 3. And a dash of salt. 4. Only complaint was that I found the sugar was disporportioned, next time I would add a higher percent to the topping and less to the apples.
Wonderful, fantastic, but most of all simple. Wouldn't change a thing. I love Apple Pie but there's just too many calories to go along with it. I used Smart Balance for the margarine, and 1/2 all-purpose 1/2 whole-wheat flour, and it turned out great AND healthy!
