Apple brown betty with ice cream

  • 115g unsalted butter, melted, plus more for baking dish
  • 50g granulated sugar
  • 6 tart green apples, peeled, cored and cut into small wedges
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 165g light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • Pinch ground nutmeg
  • Pinch salt
  • 60ml apple brandy (recommended: Calvados)
  • 1 loaf brioche bread, crusts discarded and bread cubed
  • Vanilla pod ice cream, for serving
  • Icing sugar, for garnish
1) Preheat oven to 180C/Gas 4.

2) Butter and sugar a baking dish and reserve the remaining sugar.

3) In a large mixing bowl combine apple wedges, lemon juice, brown sugar, spices, salt and apple brandy. Toss to combine evenly. In a separate mixing bowl add bread cubes, pour in the melted butter and toss to coat evenly. Layer bread cubes in the bottom of the baking dish followed by apples and repeat this so you have 2 layers of each. Press gently on top of the fillings to compact slightly. Pour any remaining liquid over the apples and bread cubes. Sprinkle with the remaining sugar and bake in the oven for 35 to 40 mins, or until the top is golden. Remove from the oven and allow to cool. Serve topped with a scoop of ice cream and icing sugar.
