  1. Tried this last night. Was very sceptical but oh my goodness! Turned out very yummy. I used apple crumble topping and did overdo it a bit with the cinnamon but everyone’s bowls were empty!

  2. Cooked this tonight! Finished it off in the oven for 10 mins, and was great!! My partner loved it and it took him back to his childhood. Thanks!

  3. This was really really nice and the whole family loved it too. I skipped the jam and when I do this again (sson) I’ll finish it in the oven for 10 minutes for crispy crusts. Highly recommended for dessert!
