Melt the butter and grease the pan in which you are going to bake the brown betty.
First spread the bread slices and then the apple slices.
Drizzle 2 tbsps of sugar on top. This is the first layer. Here is mine.
Now again layer the bread and apple and drizzle the sugar. I got two layers and drizzled all the remaining sugar on top.
Preparing the syrup
Mix the old fashioned syrup, all spice powder and orange zest.
Drizzle this syrup on top and also add the 3 tbsps of water.
Cover this aluminum foil and poke few holes.
Bake this for 45 minutes.
Then remove the cover and bake for another 15 minutes or until the apple and bread browns up.
That’s it. Apple Brown Betty is ready. Serve with syrup or honey or with whipping cream.
You can use any apples you have. Also you can replace apples with pear or berries. As I used dark old fashioned syrup, I went with light brown sugar. If you don’t have syrup in your hand, increase the sugar quantity and add additional 3 tbsps of water for the moisture. All spice powder can be replaced with ground nutmeg and ground cinnamon or just with ground cinnamon alone. Lemon / Lime / Orange zest can be used and also you can use about 2 tbsps of juice also.
