Turn your day-old bread into a delicious dessert suitable to serve at the happiest place on earth with Fruited Brown Betty.
This Fruited Brown Betty recipe appeared in the 1972 Dixie Crystals “Walt Disney World Vacation Kingdom” Cookbook. It was a dessert menu item at the Walt Disney World Liberty Tree Tavern located inside Magic Kingdom’s Liberty Square. Liberty Square celebrates early American history including food popular in colonial times.
A Brown Betty is like a crisp because it contains the same sweet, buttery crumbs. What makes it different than a crisp is the second layer of crumbs on the bottom as well as the top. It’s the perfect dessert for a cold winter’s day, filling your home with the sweet smells of apple and cinnamon while it bakes.
This Fruited Brown Betty recipe is easy to make. Your kids will love to help you measure and mix ingredients and layer them in pan just as they did in the old days.
