Apple Brown Betty

Apple Brown Betty

Recipe: Apple Brown Betty


  • 5 large apples (about 2 lbs), peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 3 slices whole wheat bread (1 oz each; crusts included), or enough to make about 21/4 cups crumbs
  • 3 tbsp chopped walnuts


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 ° F. Combine the apples, apple cider, 1 tbsp of the brown sugar, the vanilla and 1/2 tsp of the cinnamon in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the apples are tender but still retain their shape, about 10 minutes. Stir in 1 tbsp of the butter until melted, remove from the heat, and transfer the apple mixture to a 9-inch pie plate or a ceramic dish.
  2. Place the bread in the food processor and process until crumbs are formed, about 15 seconds. Melt the remaining 1 tablespoon butter in the microwave for 20 seconds. Toss the crumbs with the melted butter, walnuts, remaining 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Scatter the crumb mixture on top of the apples and bake for 30 minutes, until the topping is crisped and lightly browned.
