This is a very old recipe that must have come from my Great Grandma. I remember Grandma and Mom making this simple dessert when I was very young.

Served with ice cream or whipped cream this is very good. Both Grandma and my Dad liked it warm, in a bowl with fresh, cold, heavy cream on it.

When I make it now I usually add dried cranberries to the applesauce. You can also add raisins, walnuts, or other dried fruits or nuts.

How to Make Grandma's Apple Brown Betty

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Mix together flour, oatmeal, sugars, and butter. Stir and blend well with a fork to make a crumb mixture. Divide mixture in 2 parts.

    In 2 quart long baking pan, spread and pat down 1/2 of the crumb mixture.
  2. Stir cinnamon and any fruits or nuts you are using into the applesauce. Pour this mixture over the crumbs in the baking dish.

    Finish by carefully patting out the remaining half of the crumb mix on the applesauce.

    Bake at 350 degrees for about 20-30 minutes. Crust is done when applesauce begins to bubble.

    Good all by itself or serve warm with ice cream or whipped cream.
