Mine turned out quite crumbly. Is that normal? It's very good, though! And it smells divine!!! :)

Mine is not crumbly, but I guess it may depend on the flour.

Hi, Thanks for the recipe, the sharlotka was tasty, but I had to make substantial modifications as I think the liquid to dry ratio is wrong. When I added just 1/2 cup oil the flour mix was just too dry. I had to add an extra 1/2 cup of apple sauce and about 1/4 cup of vegan milk to get it to the consistency in your photos...
