Similar to a cobbler or bread pudding, a “betty” is made with layers of sugared, spiced fruit and buttered breadcrumbs.
Serves: 6Save Share
2 lb Fuji Apples
or 2 lb Gala Apples
or 2 lb Golden Delicious Apples
1 tsp Ground Cinnamon
½ tsp Ground Nutmeg
1 tsp Almond Extract
½ cup Dark Brown Sugar
6 oz Cranberry Juice
2 T Dried, Unsweetened Cranberries
2 Whole Grain Bread Slices
2 T Chopped Walnuts
¼ cup Quick Oats
2 T Butter
Preheat oven to 350F.
Combine apples, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, nutmeg, almond extract, 1/4 cup brown sugar, cranberry juice, cranberries and water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook until fruit is softened but not mushy, about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and transfer to a 9-inch glass pie plate.
Place bread in a food processor and pulse to form coarse crumbs.
Combine breadcrumbs, walnuts, oats, butter and remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon in a small bowl, working mixture with your fingers to blend. Sprinkle over apples and bake, uncovered, 20 to 25 minutes, until lightly browned.
