have made this lots of times and its always good.

just make sure butter is very cold or it will not crumb but turn to cake mix IYSWIM

sounds gorgeous. Have you ever tried it with cooking apples, or will they go too mushy? We have a cooking apple tree so always on look out for new recipes. Will try this with eaters anyway

no lilolil havnt tried it with cooking apples.
they would probably be too soft - however if you sliced them more thickly it might work.

well, need to wait a few months for the cookers. Will try with eating apples meantime, and will let you know re cooking apples later in the year.

Sounds lovely

I like Eve's pudding which is similar.
Put sliced apples and sugar into a casserole dish or pudding basin (you could stew the apples first if preferred). Cover with basic cake mixture and cook in the oven until done. Serve with custard or hot with ice-cream.

You can also make it with any other fruit filling.
