Just in Time for Apple Season: Apple Brown Betty

Apple Brown Betty

 I’m sure there are many different interpretations of this old-time recipe. And as true with any apple dessert, the addition of vanilla ice cream (cinnamon would be yummy, too), freshly whipped cream, or my personal favorite, Reddi Whip from a squirt can, is always a lovely finish.

 

 

Ingredients

10 -12 baking apples, peeled, cored and sliced

Lemon juice (for tossing apples)

2 teaspoons cinnamon

¼ to ½ teaspoon nutmeg (to taste, optional)

1 1/4 cups flour

3/4 cup brown sugar

1/4 lb. butter

Syrup

2/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup hot water

juice of 1/2 lemon

Directions

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.  Toss apples in lemon juice to coat.  Arrange apples on the bottom covering all of a 12” x 9” loaf pan.  Sprinkle each layer with cinnamon to taste.  Mix the flour, brown sugar and nutmeg (optional) and cut the butter in until crumbly.  Mix the syrup, and pour ½ over the apples.  Sprinkle the flour mixture over the apples, and pour the remaining syrup over the top.  Bake at 350 for 1 hour, makes 5 servings.  Serve with ice cream of your choice.  Enjoy!
