Read a lot of the reviews AFTER I made this--just to get a sense of the direction the reviews took. It seems like the sweetness is an issue with many; also 'dry', 'crumbly' & so forth.
So I will just say what I did for a DOUBLE RECIPE a) coat the rectangular glass pan thoroughly with coconut spray, b) substitute coconut sugar for brown sugar, and use organic granulated for 'white' sugar--these are both less 'sweet', c) half AP flour/half freshly milled hard red wheat flour--this gives it an interesting depth of flavor, d) add a T of ginger powder to the flour mix, also for complexity of flavor.
The mixing of the butter/egg/flour combination accomplished more by scattering the 'liquid' over the 'solid' and folding it until evenly clumpy, if that makes sense--this allows some small lumps to form, but overall the effect is of 'moisturized', not in any way doughy or wet.
Bake for ~35 minutes, then turn off oven and leave for another 10 minutes or so. Very crispy.
Hubby LOVED it; raved for about a half an hour & upset that I gave some away to my mom & brother to take home ;-)
I believe if I make this again, I will put more apples: this had about 10 small ones from our neighborhood trees.
