2 Easy Desserts – Apple Betty And Blueberry Betty

<a href="" target="_blank" rel="noopener">Source</a>

I am a baker, I have always been my interest in cooking sweets, since I began to cook anything. Bread puddings were our favorites because they are cheap and we had most of the ingredients in the pantry or fridge. I class Apple Betty and Blueberry Betty as bread puddings/ crumbles.

For years my poor old dad had to endure my baking inventions because he was my “tester” I would make something and by his expression I could tell if it was delicious or gross even before he spoke. I had just as many successful desserts as I did failures.
