On October 5, fall ushers in National Apple Betty Day with a sweet aroma of apples baked in cinnamon and oats.
Similar to what is known as apple crisp, crumble or cobbler, the American variant known as the Betty or Brown Betty dates from colonial times. Most Apple Betty recipes call for cinnamon, sugar and butter to make the crumbs that top sliced apples. Sometimes oats or flour are added, too.
As the temperatures begin dropping outside, apple Betty recipes warm the home and fill it with delicious fragrances. Apple Betty recipes allow a child’s hand to help prepare the dessert, making it a family event. The season is ideal for this treat, too. Tart apples just off the tree call out for autumn recipes like these.
Apple Brown Betty was one of the favorite desserts of Ronald and Nancy Reagan in the White House.
