Brown Betty is an American take on fruit crumble. Sweetened breadcrumbs are layered between fruit then cooked until golden.

Ingredients

High fibre wholemeal bread

140 g, (made into 2 cups breadcrumbs)

Reduced fat oil spread

2 tbs

Brown sugar

¼ cup(s), (55g)

Ground cinnamon

1 tsp

Canned pears in natural juice, drained

820 g, (canned, drained) thinly sliced

Dried cranberries

¼ cup(s)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C or 180°C fan-forced. Place breadcrumbs in a large bowl. Rub in spread until coarse crumbs form. Stir in sugar and cinnamon.
  2. Place half the pears and half the cranberries in four 1-cup (250ml) capacity ramekins. Sprinkle over half the breadcrumb mixture. Repeat layers, finishing with breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Place ramekins on a baking tray. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and heated through. Serve.

Notes

TIP: You can use canned pie apple instead of pear and frozen raspberries instead of cranberries.
