Grandma Solberg's Apple Brown Betty

Total Time
Prep 20 mins
Cook 35 mins

I'm gradually entering the recipes from my Grandma that I have. Although I don't eat wheat, I'm still posting the ones that contain wheat as they were written by her. Over time, I'll try to come up with wheat-free varieties. This one is easy - I just omit the flour or use oat flour (I buy it in bulk from Bob's Red Mill). I used to help Grandma pick up the apples that fell off the neighbor's tree to make this and painstakingly peel one apple for every 5 that she flawlessly peeled!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Mix all ingredients except the apples and water together until the butter is broken up into small pea shapes.
  3. Alternate layers of apples and crumb mixture in an 8x8 greased baking pan, finishing with crumb mixture on top.
  4. Pour the water over the top.
  5. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes.
