Served warm or cold with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream, this is a quick and easy recipe with apples that EVERYONE will love!

I like to make this apple betty in a round casserole dish, but of course it can just as easily be made into a square baking dish.

For a variation, this recipe can be made as a Deep Dish Apple Brown Betty, covered with pastry instead of the crumble topping, (see below).

Using a purchased pie crust, placed upside-down over the apples makes a VERY quick warm apple dessert!

Best Recipe for Apple Brown Betty Dessert

Homemade Apple Brown Betty Dessert Crisp


8 - 9 medium-large size apples
1/3 cup granulated sugar (more if apples are tart)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup butter
1/2 tsp. salt
sprinkling of cinnamon, if desired


Core, peel and slice the apples into a greased, 9" round casserole dish.

Sprinkle the granulated sugar over the apples, and, if desired sprinkle cinnamon over the sugar.

In a bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, butter and salt until mixture is crumbly. Mixture will be a little lumpy, that is normal.

Sprinkle the crumb mixture over the apples in the casserole dish, and pat the topping down lightly with your hand.

Bake, uncovered, at 375° F for about 35 minutes, or until apples are tender, and topping is golden.

Serve warm or cold with a dollop of ice cream or whipped cream, or serve plain!

Re-heat any left-overs in the microwave.

So Good! ENJOY!

Serves 8.

Recipe Variation - Deep Dish Apple Betty

Prepare apples as above, and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

Cover apples with pastry, (you can use homemade pastry, or a purchased pie crust placed upside-down over the apples!), and cut "vents" (slits) in the crust.

Sprinkle pastry crust with granulated or raw sugar.

Bake as above.

I don't think making an apple dessert recipe can be ANY easier than that!
