    Julesong's Note:

    Most people have heard of "Apple Brown Betty" but this is a version for when you'd like something a bit different and/or you don't have any apples about. From what I understand, a jam version is also as quite traditional as apple, made during lean times. When we've made this we used various kinds of jams or jellies, or sometimes a mixture! It's a good way to use up those almost-empty jars in the fridge to make way for fresh ones. :) You can make this with leftover flavored breads, too, such as zucchini or gingerbread - yum!

      This was very easy to make and tasted great. I used blackberry, currant, grape and orange marmalade but just about any combination of jams or jellies would work well. We will be making this again!
