  • “I think this is now MY favourite apple dessert!! This is a wonderful recipe…5 stars plus! I think I may have overdone it a bit on the apples, though. I couldn’t fit all of the sauce in the baking dish (but got most of it in there) I had to bake for a little longer (about 45 min.), but I also have a whacky oven, so that may have been the culprit. Definitely going in my “Favorites” recipe box!! Thanks, bert:)~Manda”

  • “Thanks Bert!I too couldn’t figure out how all the sauce was going to fit into an 8×8 pan after all the apples and batter but a hole or two punched through the batter let all the extra sauce dribble in down between the apple slices to produce a really great apple dessert! This was easy, a little like apple crisp and tasty like an apple pie. I’m guessing that this will be my apple dessert of choice in the future.”

  • “Lovely apple pudding! I added a handful of raisons to this as I love raisons and the flavours were wonderful….reminded me of the fall season but I would eat this pudding any time of theyear ! Thanks, Bert, for sharing this special dessert!”

  • “Family and guests loved this pudding. I added a handful of fresh cranberries to the apples and it was delicious! The sweet sauce and apples were great with the tangy cranberries. Thanks for a quick and tasty dessert Bert!”

  • “Lovely, we ate every scrap, so not one to add to your cookery book if you are trying to lose weight.”

  • “I made this last night for my bf and he said it was terrific!!! Very crispy on top and sweet and gooey on the bottom. He did put a dish towel over it and the topping got soggy, so I would reccommend if you want to keep the topping crisp don’t cover it!”

  • “This was excellent!!SOO easy to make!I forgot to sprinkle the apples with cinnamon and it was still great!!The first helping I attempted to sprinkle cinnamon on the finished product…I accidentally grabbed dill weed instead (oops!, don’t really recommend this!)I served this with vanilla ice cream.I can’t wait to go home at lunch and finish it off!!”
