I used this recipe as a go-by, making a few changes: I omitted the white sugar, leaving just 1/2 cup of brown, and replaced one slice of bread with a half-cup of walnuts. It came out delicious, and we did not miss the omitted sugar.I served it topped with warm custard sauce.

I recall preparing this recipe when it was featured in Taste of Home! If baking apples aren't available, I'll use other firm apples such as Gala, Honey Crisp or Fuji besides the Granny Smith apples which I basically use for baking! One time, I had prepared this dessert for a friend who has a sugar sensitivity (NOT diabetic, though)! I'd used 1/2 to 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice and 1/4 cup of maple syrup-the secret with these natural liquid sweetening agents is using just enough so that ingredients don't get soggy and "swim"!I've also prepared this recipe using the sugar called for in the recipe! delowenstein
