This is very good. I made it in a 20x20 cm pan. The bake time for me was 46 minutes, to give you a ballpark estimate. I thought the nuts on top were great, and doubled the amount of them.

As a postscript, it was really pretty but much lighter in color than the picture shown. I can’t figure out how to post a pic here.
