Start with a single-layer cake mix, a can of apple pie filling and you can't get simpler than that. I buy the Jiffy brand cake mixes since it's a convenient size for me, but you can use 1/2 of a regular double-layer cake mix if that's what you have.
I used almonds, but any nuts you have on hand will do--or none at all if you are not into nuts.
Serve with real whipped cream, or just cream poured over the top. Also is terrific served a la mode.
This is a real winner.
