    Nice and simple to make. I used less sugar, I always do. The cake needed much longer in the oven, at 160 as recommended, as the apples came out really pale looking after 45 mins. Did another half hour to get it browner, but still doesn't look as toffee-ish as on the photo!  -  04 Oct 2013  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
