The apples just don't come out right (made twice). They come out rather rubbery which spoils the whole thing. The cake, the topping and especially the rum sauce are EXCELLENT. Maybe peaches or even blueberries would work much better.

Hi Jeannie,
We're sorry to hear you had issues with this recipe! The type of apples used in the recipe are important. We'd suggest using Granny Smith apples, because they hold up the best during baking, and won't turn rubbery. Hope this helps - happy baking!
