Brown Betty

This oh-so yummy photo of Apple Brown Betty stopped me in my WP tracks this morning. 😉 I want some right now.

I make a similar dessert but definitely not with that much butter or sugar. 😦 The photo did inspire me to make some soon though. 🙂 Do you have a fav Brown Betty recipe?

Have a fabulous late autumn weekend. It’s still nice and warm, here in BC. 🙂

Brown Betty is a traditional American dessert made from fruit (usually apple) and sweetened bread crumbs. It is similar to a cobbler or apple crisp, and the fruit is baked.  It is an old dessert, first mentioned in print in 1864.  Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House.  They served Apple Brown Betty at my elementary school cafeteria and I loved it.  They served real food back in the sixties and seventies!

  1. Thanks for the reblog. And you are right about the sugar and butter. Darn. 🙂

  2. It’s an easy fix Karyl and doesn’t really affect the taste. I don’t like overly sweet desserts of any kind, or ones with too much fat content. This is still oh so inspiring and yummy to look at. Have a great weekend.

  3. Mmmm – looks delicious!

  4. Looks good but the sugar and butter are way too much.

  5. I don’t think I’ve ever eaten this, but I do like cobblers and crisps.

  6. Lady Fi, I agree. 😉

    And Joe, I agree too. 😉

    Sure made me hungry when I saw this photo in my reader!

    If you like cobblers, crisps etc…you will like Bettys too Patti. And a great way to use up slightly less than fresh bread too.

    Happy Baking and Weekend, G

  7. looks good. I might try this one day.
