Apple Brown Betty

Ingredients:

8 bread slices (any kind of bread will do, I used wheat bread)

4 apples (any apples will do, I prefer more of a tart apple and used Granny Smith)

1/2 cup brown sugar +1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 cup water

1/2 stick of butter, cut into slices

lemon juice

Directions:

Pull apart or cut the bread slices into small pieces/cubes, place in a bowl and set aside. Peel, core, and slice the apples. Dice the apples and place them in a medium mixing bowl tossed with some lemon juice. Add the brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, and mix together so the apples are coated well. Using a greased pie baking dish or a 9x9 baking dish, layer the apple mixture and the bread pieces alternately topping off with the bread pieces. Pour the water evenly over the prepared mixture in the baking dish and sprinkle the top with the remaining brown sugar. Top off with slender slices of butter placed all around the top. Cover with foil and bake at 375 degrees for 40 minutes. Remove foil and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serve cold or warm with a tablespoon for whipped topping for extra deliciousness!
