Apple Brown Betty

4 medium apples, sliced
1 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
1 cup stale pound cake crumbs (or angel food cake or soft bread crumbs)
4-1/2 Tbsp. butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. ground allspice
1/4 tsp. ground ginger
Pinch of salt
1/4 cup apple cider
Vanilla ice cream for serving


Using 1 Tbsp. of the butter, liberally coat a 1-1/2 – 2-qt. baking dish. In a medium bowl, combine the apples and lemon juice and toss to combine. In a small bowl, combine the cake crumbs, 3 Tbsp. butter, sugar, cinnamon, allspice, ginger, and salt and toss to thoroughly combine. Place half of the sliced apples in the buttered baking dish. Cover with half of the bread crumb mixture. Add remaining apple slices and drizzle the apple cider over the apples. Top with the remaining crumb mixture. Dot with the remaining butter. Bake at 375°F for 45 minutes until the apples are bubbly and tender and the crumbs are nicely browned. Serve hot with cream, whipped topping, or ice cream.
