Swiss Apple Pudding

About a year and a half ago, during a very short weekend where I ran back from NJ to CA (by ran, I really mean flew), my aunt had a ginormous Thanksgiving gathering of sorts with all kinds of food. :O It was pretty awesome. Among those was a Swiss Apple Pudding (well, two of em’) that my uncle made. What makes this recipe more awesome = there are two ways to make it. (One for the lazy/pressed-for-time, and one for if you actually want to make a legit one.)
