I made two versions of this recipe and both turned out really well. The first, I made exactly as you directed and it was wonderful- gave it to my neighbor who just moved in. The second I made for myself with some modifications. First, I used applesauce instead of the shortening, Splenda instead of the sugar, and sugar-free maple-flavored b'fast syrup instead of the pure stuff. I also added 1/2 teaspoon vanilla. It turned out well. Not as tasty as the original recipe, but I may play around with it some more and post my updated recipe, of course paying homage to yours! I think slicing some apples and placing in the bottom of the pan would make it something truly special for Fall get-togethers. Thanks! I know my neighbor thanks you too.
