The quantity of sugar would vary with the tartness of the apples (some cooking apples require almost no sugar) and the taste of the people who are going to eat the apples.I expect there are many Apple Dappy recipes. This particular one does not include cinnamon or raisins.

How much brown sugar? And I'm sure when my Granny used to make it she used raisins and cinnammon too?

4 large cooking apples should be enough.

Any guideline on the amount of apples?

yes the first lot of butter (4 tablespoons) is for making the dough and the second lot(2 tablespoons) is for making the topping.We will amend the recipe to make it clearer.
