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!

 I really do love cranberries! And for so many reasons. 😉

Their unique taste,beautiful deep red color, nutritional value, even their shiny, glossy texture! The interesting way they are grown and harvested.

And of course, their special significance at Christmas and all the memories that enjoying cranberries over the years, conjures up. 🙂

My blog-bud Caroline Brown over at Earth Friendly Gardeninghas graciously agreed to do a co-post (new blog word???LOL) on cranberries.

I’m providing a  cranberry loaf recipe (see end of this post)and Caroline shares her wisdom on this fall fav. fruit in this archive post from:
