  • In a small bowl, mix flour, baking soda, salt and 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon. Set aside.

  • Beat 3/4 cup butter and sugar until smooth and fluffy. Stir in water. Add flour mixture and mix just until combined. Fold in reserved nuts.

  • Spread batter evenly over apples and bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.

  • Cool 10 minutes, then invert onto serving plate.
