How have I never had this before? I can't believe how great this tastes! I used Red Delicious apples, but could only fit four into an 8x8. That worked out just right for me. It's a very filling meal and so far I have only eaten it just after baking, not at room temperature. The aroma is just what you want out of anything with so many apples and apple juice. The apples don't go to mush and fall apart, which is excellent. The oats, etc. didn't get too crispy and the apple juice was bubbling out the sides. An excellent recipe, will re-use over and over again.
This was really good!! I didn't have the allspice so I substituted 1/8 t ground cloves and 1/8 t pumpkin pie spice. I also forgot to set my timer so it was in the oven longer than it needed to be, but the apples didn't dry out and the oatmeal mix was delightfully crisp on top and chewy underneath the top layer and reminded me of eating oatmeal cookies. I also mixed the apple juice in with the mix instead of sprinkling it on top. I plan to take this to work sometime soon...assuming I don't eat it all before it gets there. =)
I followed ingredients exactly. I used Gala apples. This was delicious.
