"The recipe is just fine as written. I overcooked mine just slightly by accident. I think it might be better described as Apple Pudding cake, but maybe that was part of my overcooking. Regardless, it was excellent. Only thing I added differently was vanilla. 4 Stars for a perfectly fine recipe I would serve anytime. I love that has just simple , cheap ingredients, makes it even better, and far more practical for any occasion. I initially thought maybe it would be too much sugar, but did not taste over the top."
