Yield : Makes 4 servings
Prep Time : 30 mins
Cooking Time : 5–45 mins

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 lb (900g) cooking apples, such as Granny Smith or Golden Delicious
  • ½ cup packed light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon

Special Equipment:

  • 9 in (23cm) square baking dish

Directions

3

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Melt the butter in a frying pan. Add the bread crumbs and mix well.

2. Peel, quarter, and core the apples. Slice them and put in a bowl. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, lemon zest and juice, and vanilla. Mix well.

3. Spread half of the apples in a 9in (23cm) square baking dish. Cover with half of the bread crumbs. Repeat with the remaining apples and bread crumbs.

4. Bake for 35–45 minutes, until the topping is golden brown and the apples are tender. If the topping is browning too quickly, reduce the heat to 325°F (170°C), and tent with foil. Whip the cream with the confectioner's sugar. Serve the betty warm, with the cream.
