Very yummy dessert. I only had a very large lasange dish to cook it in so I added to 400g cans of apples. with it being in large dish the sponge mixture just covered it which made it cook a lot faster. I also put a good dose of cinnamon on the fruit before I put the batter on top.

A bit bland according to the family feedback - maybe I should serve it with Ice cream next time!
