2 Easy Desserts – Apple Betty And Blueberry Betty


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.


For Apple Betty you will need :

  • 3 cups of sliced apples
  • 1 1/2 cups of soft bread crumbs
  • 1/3 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 4 tablespoons of butter
  • 3/4 cup of water

Preheat oven to 350°.

Melt butter. Mix apples, 1 cup bread crumbs, brown sugar and cinnamon together.

Butter a baking dish.

Pour mixture into baking dish and pour melted butt and water over the top.

Mix 1/2 cup bread crumbs with more melted butter and sprinkle on top.

Bake 35 minutes. Serve hot or cold. Makes 4-6 servings.


To make Blueberry Betty you will need :

  • 3 cups of blueberries
  • 3/4 cups of sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon juice
  • French toast
  • confectioners sugar
  • Nutmeg
  • Vanilla ice cream

Preheat oven to 425 °

Cook blueberries, salt , sugar  and lemon juice for 10 minutes.

Next pour blueberry mixture into a baking dish.

Top with slices of French toast.

Sprinkle confectioners sugar and nutmeg on top.

Bake for 20 minutes.

Serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top while hot.

Makes 4-6 servings.

Thats is just two types of bread pudding or crumbles I leaned to make without milk or eggs. However I do think the classic bread pudding will always be my all time favorite as it was for my dad too.
