This is a totally different take on apple crumble or kugel, with the delicious batter baking on top of the apples. I love the mini muffins for a beautiful presentation, but you can save time by baking one big kugel in a 9- x 13-inch pan instead. I make this recipe in large quantities as muffins. They are great for a snack, afternoon tea, or a picnic.

Fill muffin cups with apple filling until they are two-thirds full, then pour batter over apples until cups are full. Sprinkle with almond topping.
