Today's Reason to Celebrate

October 5, 2015 is

National Apple Betty Day

Today is National Apple Betty Day! Apple betty is a crustless apple pie seasoned with cinnamon, nutmeg, and sugar. An apple brown betty is a common variation, which includes layers of sweetened breadcrumbs.

This classic American dessert dates back to the colonial period and probably evolved from the traditional English bread pudding. The name “brown betty” first appeared in print in 1864 when it was mentioned in a Yale Literary Magazine article.

In honor of National Apple Betty Day, bake your own version of this scrumptious dessert and top it with lemon sauce, ice cream, or whip cream. Yum!
