The spices were a little strong. This was fairly easy to make.

This recipe was just what I wanted and it worked a treat. I wanted to make a simple cooked apple recipe that didn't involve having to cut butter into flour (as i don't have a pastry cutter and I didn't want the fuss) and that used breadcrumbs instead (not fresh ones, but dried out ones, which I had in abundance). The only change I made was I used only 1/2 cup of brown sugar and only lightly packed. I found that plenty sweet enough - I was also a bit more liberal with the lemon juice as I like the tart flavour it imparts. I thought that maybe there wouldn't be enough breadcrumb mixture, but it was just fine. The best thing was that I felt it actually improved the following day and withstands being reheated easily - perfect cold weather pud'! Will definitely make again, maybe try using wholemeal breadcrumbs next time.
