I made this 3X this wk..it was too tasty not to cut and gobble up..tomorrow is my dad in laws 65th bday@his wife asked me to make this (4 the 3rd time in 5days,Promise:) for him,the only change is instead of 125g of flour...etc,I made it 300g..it looks good but I hope it's tasty also as the first 2 that I made..my mom told me to make this for her&my dad this sunday (life in abroad is hard,we see each other only once a wk),we usually share recipes though she's a good cook than me:) my hubby&son,we all love this&I really thank u for sharing.
I would have taken a photo - but wasn't quick enough! Clear directions; only change was to add some ground all-spice and extra cinnamon. We all loved this and I'll certainly be making it again! Thanks!
I made this today. My only problem is it gets eaten so fast. (it's all gone!) I couldn't find any cooking apples so used braeburns and they were perfect for it. We had it with toffee ice cream.
