I decided I wanted to bake an afternoon treat when visiting my parents but didn't want to have to go to the shop. This was perfect with simple, common ingredients and a virtually fool proof recipe. I substituted pears for apples and put in cinnamon to compliment the fruit and put in 40g of sultanas as I really love them. I followed the recipe otherwise exactly as written it was perfectly baked at 1 hour on the dot.
My husband who doesn't like saltanas liked it too but we both agreed that additional vanilla and using raisin toast as others have suggested would have made it even better. It definitely would have been bland without the cinnamon we put in and another half or full apple would be required to cover the top in full!
Love it, will definitely make it again!
