Wonderful dessert. I typically make apple crisp for dessert when we have company. This time I wanted to bake something different so I decided to try this. Love how the topping sinks to the bottom and makes a crust. Easily converted this to gluten free just as written using my favorite GF flour mix. Will definitely make this again - might try using pecans next time since we like them better than walnuts.

Forgot the walnuts on top - and still fantastic... Added about three handfuls of cranberries - GREAT! Great for a holiday dessert or anytime! I was eating it out of the pan. Would be great served with c**l w**p, too.

Good but a bit much batter for the amount of apples. I will up the apples by about half next time. Good, just needs a bit of tweaking.
