What is an Apple Brown Betty?

Dating back to the early American Colonial days, a "betty" was a baked pudding made with layers of sweetened or spiced fruit and bread crumbs. Some food historians believe that this came about because of the limited facilities to make pie crusts, so bread crumbs worked very well for this type of bread pudding dessert. In fact in those days no one wasted food, so bread crumbs served very well in desserts, stews and casseroles.

Today it is usually served with a lemon sauce and/or whipped cream. The most familiar one is the Apple Brown Betty, made with sliced apples and brown sugar.
