    Topping: Combine brown sugar, butter and milk in a small saucepan; bring to a boil and pour immediately over the baked hot cake. The icing will partially be absorbed into the cake leaving a caramel topping. Trim with reserved nuts. Do not cut for at least 1 hour. Yields 20 squares. Note: If canned apples are used, use 1 1/2 cans of unsweetened pie apples. Drain apples and pat with paper towels.
