Apple Brown Betty

Here's a healthy twist on a classic American dessert. I chop my bread into tiny pieces, but feel free to make the more usual bread crumbs from your whole-wheat bread. Either way, this is a delicious low fat dessert that's perfect for fall.

Apple Brown Betty Dessert Recipes


* 2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
* 1 tbsp lemon juice
* 5 slices whole wheat bread
* 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
* 1 tsp cinnamon
* 3/4 cup unsweetened apple juice


Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Thinly slice apples and place in a large bowl. Add lemon juice and toss. Stack bread slices and slice into thin strips. Turn strips and cut into very small cubes. In a small bowl combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Coat an 8 inch by 8 inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray. Cover the bottom with one-third of the apple slices. Sprinkle with one-third of the brown sugar/cinnamon mix, and then sprinkle one-third bread cubes. Repeat until apples, sugar and bread are used. Pour apple juice over the top.

Bake for 40 minutes until bubbly.
