This was delicious! I ground the walnuts up fine in the blender and used margarine in place of the butter. I did make one mistake.....I grabbed the jar of jam, spread it on the batter, and then discovered it was orange marmalade, not apricot jam!!! It was still delicious! I will make it again and use apricot jam! Michelle, you forgot to put the temperature, I baked it at 350*. Also, a 13x9-inch pan was way too big, I used a 9x9 and it came out just right. You can send in a correction and put the temp. in. Thanks for a good recipe!
