Quick and easy to make . . . and very tasty! Did not have almonds so substituted pecans and it was excellent. Since I was making as a dessert, I sprinkled the top of batter with a tablespoon or two of brown sugar before arranging the apple slices and nuts. It made a nice carmel topping, really didn't need the glaze. Thanks for sharing.
