Made this recipe last night, however we used dark muscavado sugar instead of light by accident. As a result, the sauce was not at all nice. We fully understand that this was our fault, but thought we'd warn you to use the right ingredients (to the letter) ooops! The apples and pears were still nice though and we enjoyed them with yoghurt.
