This apple brown betty is a snap to put together in the slow cooker. It's wonderful served warm with whipped cream or whipped topping. Add a sprinkling of cinnamon sugar to the whipped cream, or serve the dessert with a scoop of ice cream.

It's a mouthwatering mixture of sliced apples, bread cubes, spices, brown sugar, and butter.


  • 3 pounds cooking apples (Rome, Granny Smith, Jonathan, etc.)
  • 10 slices of bread, cubed, about 4 cups of bread cubes
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 cup melted butter

Steps to Make It

  4. In a bowl, combine the bread cubes with cinnamon, nutmeg, salt, brown sugar, and melted butter; toss together.

  5. Place the bread cubes on top of apples in crockpot.
