The first time I made Apple Betty was for a church youth activity and I was about 14. My mom was running late at work and she called me and asked me to do it. I knew how to do things around the kitchen, but I was by no means an expert. I had never made this dish before, and I’m not sure if I had ever eaten it before. Needless to say, I had no idea what I was doing. My mom gave great directions over the phone and I tried to do as she said. Luckily, I did not burn down the house or the dessert. In fact several people were to bring this dish and mine was the prettiest one, according to my mom. She may have just been being nice, I’m not sure. Since then, this has become one of my favorite simple desserts. I have redone the recipe so my little family can enjoy it again, living without gluten is always an adventure here. I have now done it a couple of different ways and I will include both options below. I hope you enjoy!
