A betty is a classic American dessert consisting of layers of spiced fruit and buttered breadcrumbs. We used whole wheat French bread to make the crumbs.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 2

Combine breadcrumbs, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, salt, granulated sugar, and 2 tablespoons butter.

Step 3

Combine apple, remaining 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, remaining 1 tablespoon butter, brown sugar, 2 tablespoons cider, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl.

Step 4

Sprinkle half of crumb mixture in bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray. Spoon apple filling over crumb mixture, and sprinkle remaining crumb mixture over apple; spoon remaining 2 tablespoons cider over crumbs.

Step 5

Cover and bake at 375° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 15 minutes or until lightly browned and bubbly.
