Great recipe and I love the base, much quicker than making a pastry case! Very tasty indeed and so easy to make.

Great pudding, with a slightly different base (delicious, and also uses the yolks from the meringue). I have made it by grating the apples as per the recipe, but it was excellent with apple purée I had in the freezer. Certainly with Bramleys you don’t need any added sugar. Yum, and thanks!
