Okay, I know I promised this recipe last week after our apple picking adventure
. So sorry! Here she is, Apple Brown Betty.
And she is as good as she looks! Ready for the recipe? I found Apple Brown Betty in my September 2011 edition of Southern Living Magazine.
Ingredients: 4 large tart apples, fresh soft breadcrumbs, browns sugar, cinnamon, melted butter and apple cider. The original recipe calls for Granny Smith apples. I used what we got from Sky Top,
Pink Lady and Gold Rush, which are other varieties of tart apples. Pink Lady are my favorite! They were small so I used 6.
Peel the apples and cut into 1/4-inch slices.
Mix 1 cup brown sugar and 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon in a small bowl.
Mix 4 cups breadcrumbs and 1/3 cup melted butter in another bowl.
In a greased baking dish, layer half of apple slices, 1/2 of brown sugar mixture and half of bread crumb mixture.
Repeat the layers with the remaining apples, brown sugar mixture and bread crumb mixture.
Pour 1 cup apple cider over the top.
Bake in a 350* oven for 55 minutes to one hour.
Your whole house will be smelling fabulous as this bakes!
Serve with a dollop of fresh whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
