      This is an excellent recipe to put to use those apples God made. There are a few things that I found important in making this recipe taste good though. The apples you use can make or break this recipe. I made this recipe with granny smith apples, and it was pretty good, but nothing really special. Now, when I used Missourri galas, it was extraordinary. My mom said it was better than any apple pie she has had in restaurants. The sweetness of the MO galas really made the difference, and the granny smith's paled in comparison with their tartness. I also used Penzey's spices cinammon which is still fairly new (this is a blend of about 4 different kinds of cinammon). If you ever get ahold of that cinammon, you won't regret it. Don't forget to top each piece off with one or two scoops of vanilla ice cream. Choose a fairly normal or old fashioned vanilla ice cream that doesn't have a fakey vanilla taste like you would find in Blue Bunny for example. We actually found a decent, but cheap brand at Aldi called Sundae Shop that worked very well on top of this brown betty.

      My kids and I thought it tasted great. Used a combo of granny smith apples and gala. They were quite large so I ended up having to add a bit more of all the ingredients. Doubled the syrup but didn't double the topping so I stuck wanting more of the topping while eating this. Think I'll just double it from now on. Great taste though.

      This was delicious and simple. I used Fuji apples. Next time I think I'll try adding a some vanilla bean to help bring out the flavors. Thanks for sharing. Made for No-Nonsense Nibblers Germany/Benelux ZWT6.
