From Carlene Duda's 'Beyond Oatmeal: 101 Breakfast Recipes'...I have an apple tree that puts out a lot of apples and I am putting them to good use with this recipe.

Just didn't have a lot of flavor. I made caramel sauce to go over it and that helped. I loved the fresh apples in it and even put cinnamon in the recipe after tasting it with just the nutmeg. Just tasted kind of plain. But super moist.

Very good recipe. I have made it twice and added cinnamon. I also forgot to take the flour out for the top and took 1/2 cup of the dry mix and it was really good. I also sized the recipe up by 1.5 to fit in a 9 x 9 pan. Thank you for the recipe.

This recipe is fabulous! I substituted 1/3 cup white rice flour, 1/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca starch and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum for the 1 cup of flour to make it gluten free and it came out super moist and delicious.
