Disaster. Way too much apple for this to work -we used 1kg of apple after peeling and coring -obviously wrong!-we got soggy like others,even with 20 mins extra cook time. Sad -last apples from our tree this year, squandered...

I followed the recipe and used eating apples, the only thing different I used a square tin not round cooked it 10 mins longer than it said edges lovely but the centre all stoggy tastes good but would not cook it again. First time I've not had great results with your recipes.

I should have read the comments before making the recipe. I followed the recipe as written and have just wasted 1 kg apples. My family really likes flapjacks - their is no way I'm going to get them to eat what's just come out of the oven! We don't really eat lots of sugary things but I used 3 times the amount of sweetener suggested but it needed more, The best I can think of to do with the gooey mass I've just made is to service it up as a pudding hidden under alot of ice cream. Could you change what's actually written on the recipe because it evidently doesn't work.

Hi Jezabel, sorry to hear that. We'll check with the recipe writer about the grated apple.

I'm disappointed that this didn't turn out very well. The recipe didn't say whether the grated apple should be drained of apple juice, so mines have turned out soggy as my apples were quite juicy. Anybody else have this problem?

They're quite nice, and simple to make, but I personally think they could use a little bit more sugar.

I have to say this wasn't actually as trouble-free and quick as it looks. 1kg of grated apples is a lot! I had 10 apples in the house and thought this would be enough but it yield 870g so I had to adjust the recipe a little. Nice recipe but bear in mind you will need a lot of apples and a food processor to grate them would be a plus too!
