Apple Betty: Review

I don’t know what Holden Caulfield was talking about! In The Catcher in the Rye, Caulfield is talking about the boarding school his parents make him attend. When talking about the swill he had to endure in the school’s cafeteria he said,

“You always got these very lumpy mashed potatoes on steak night, and for dessert you got Brown Betty, which nobody ate, except maybe the kids in the lower school that didn’t know any better – and guys like Ackley that ate everything.”

And while Holden Caulfield is my favourite literary character of a ll time, and Catcher in the Rye is my favourite book, I just can’t agree with him on this one.

This dessert is so warm and delicious and comforting! It’s just like apple pie, but with a delicious streusel topping instead of a crust, and without all the work too! This dish takes about 10 minutes to pull together before you put it into the oven; and I made it the day before grocery-shopping day and I still had every single ingredient this dish needs.

I did mix it up a bit from the original recipe that I found on All Recipes, but just by throwing the dry ingredients into the food processor instead of mixing it with my hands. And I also threw a few more spices in there just because I looove my baking spices! I never knew what Apple Betty was before National Apple Betty day (which is today by the way,) but I’m so glad I found out!
