  1. 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.
  2. 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. =)
  3. I followed ingredients exactly. I used Gala apples. This was delicious.
  4. made it for Sukkot celebrations. SO here are my thoughts: The first night we had it it just wasn't so good. It was okay, but nothing spetacular and I was already thinking of ways to change it. But then I made the "mistake" of leaving it out all night on the counter. When I tasted it and smelled it to see if it was still good (or if I had to throw it away) imagine my surprize that it was REALLY REALLY GOOD at room temp and after it had been sitting out all night. WOW! So I just left it out all day and we nibbled at it until it was gone. It was fudgy and mushy and just perfect. We had it with ice cream. I kept the skins on the apples and cut into chunks and also used spelt flour but other than that, made the recipe "as is". I would make it again with the note that I would make it ahead of time and leave it out but I would also maybe try another recipe first to see if I found something that was tastier and more versitile. 3.5 stars but I'll give it a 4 because I'd rather rate up on this one than down.


I love food and I love to cook, but I rarely ever have the time to cook as often as I like. I love trying different foods and enjoy learning to make new foods. <img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket">
