Apple Betty Day

October 5 is Apple Betty Day!

Similar to cobbler and bread pudding, apple brown Betty is a traditional American dessert consisting of apples baked between layers of buttered bread crumbs that are also  sweetened and flavored with brown sugar and spices, such as cinnamon and nutmeg. Apple brown Betty is often served with lemon sauce, ice cream or whip cream.

According to Punchbowl.com, the apple brown Betty was created back in Colonial times, with the recipe first appearing in print in an 1864 issue of the Yale Literary Magazine.

Celebrate Apple Betty Day by making your own apple brown Betty. While you can certainly make a brown Betty using other fruit, such as berries or pears, we recommend you stick with apples today.
