Adding the eggs before the flour just resulted in the mixture splitting - it needed some flour to allow the eggs to combine with the butter.

Apple not cooked enough against the topping, apple needs pre-cooking in my opinion. 45 minutes at the given temperature wasn't long enough to cook the topping in the middle, so gave it longer. Apples needed sugar also, too sour, and maybe cloves or nutmeg or cinnamon would have been a nice accompaniment as the apples were a bit plain as no sugar. Not great all in all.

I layered my apples in and feel they need a light dusting of caster sugar in between each layer just to bring the flavour out and elevate the pudding. Whilst not sour they definatley lacked the sweet note you want in a desert.

Ooh yes - this is a full blown "pudding" which we had with lashings of cream and custard after a pulled pork Sunday lunch. It must be the beginning of Autumn because I used windfall Bramleys... Fantastic!

The apples weren't soft enough and should be more like a compote. I would pre-cook them next time. Also, the cake mix is quite dry and needs to be sweeter really. Definitely not a pudding. I'm not a fan of custard (I had a little cream) so wasn't able to smother it to disguise these facts!

Clean forgot to add the raisins! Was lovely, like the use of soft brown sugar - made the sponge rich and gave it some depth. Made a large pudding, at least 6 servings!

Delicious. Only addition was a sprinkling of nutmeg over the apples.

Wonderful pud! As a result of a previous comment, I decided to stew the apples on their own first, but I'm not sure this was really necessary. I substituted the flour with gluten free - the sponge still tasted good and none of my guests guessed!

This dessert is definatly must try even if you don't like sponge puddings or even apple its got some thing for every one and it all blends in well together. I don't like sponge products but this was fantastic and my guests loved it or they said they did. I will certainly make this again. Many thanks for putting it one
