Brown Betty

(Desserts And Cakes) - (Joe Tilden's Recipes For Epicures)

Cover the bottom of a baking dish with bread crumbs, over which place
a layer of thinly sliced tart apples. Sprinkle thickly with sugar and
small pieces of butter, cinnamon and nutmeg, then cover with bread
crumbs and repeat the layers until the dish is filled, having a layer
of crumbs sprinkled with bits of butter on top. Then pour over all
three-quarters of a cup of molasses thinned with a little hot water.
Bake until the apples are tender and the top is well browned.

Pare, quarter, core and slice four medium-sized apples. Melt one-quarter
cup of butter and pour it with the juice of half a lemon over one cup of
bread crumbs. Mix one-half teaspoon of cinnamon, grated rind of one-half
lemon and one-quarter cup of sugar together. Butter a baking dish; put
in alternate layers of apple and bread crumbs, sprinkling the apples
with the sugar mixture, and making the last layer of crumbs. Pour
one-quarter cup of boiling water on before adding the last layer of
crumbs; cover and bake for thirty minutes or until the apples are soft;
then uncover and brown the crumbs. Serve with cream or with soft custard
or lemon sauce. If desired for a meat meal, substitute chicken-fat for
butter and use lemon sauce.

Brown Betty

Butter thin slices of bread, line the bottom of the pudding dish, add a

layer of sliced apples, sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon, and repeat

these layers until the dish is full. Cover with a tin lid and bake

twenty minutes, then remove lid and leave until brown on top. The cover

is necessary to keep in the moisture, as the juice of the apples is the

only liquid. Serve with cream and sugar, or hot sauce.
