  1. This had great flavor, and was certainly easy to prepare, but I wish the directions were a bit clearer. I agree with Brenda... it's obvious that the flour needs to be measured by weight, not volume. I made the mistake of measuring by volume and ended up with a filling that was way too thin and just didn't set properly, even after an extra 10 minutes in the oven. Once I pick up a kitchen scale, I'll be happy to try this again. :)
  2. This was different from the apple pie I am used to , but nonetheless tasty. I would probably cut the batter in half next time as there was a lot of batter compared to apples. I converted to US measurements and weighed the ingredients. I believe I was successful with my measurements as the dessert was lovely. I too added a sprinkle of cinnamon and served warm with vanilla ice cream. Thanks for sharing katia :) Nick's Mom
  3. Made for Photo Tag Fall 07 I had ALOT of trouble figuring out the measurements...its totally my fault...the batter part was way too dense and rubbery.:( Made properly...this would be lovely...it does'nt show in the photo so I will upload it anyhow. I added some cinnamon and nutmeg as well.
  4. A simple and great tasting dessert. I did add a little cinnamon and nutmeg to the apples. Thank you katia!
