Slow Cooker Brown Betty

I am taking full advantage of the unusually chilly nights we’ve been having.

Specifically, by making warm desserts to enjoy after quick, weeknight dinners.

I think I’ve only had apple brown betty once a few years ago as part of a pre-fix dinner menu, and I remember how warm and spiced it was. Exactly what I was craving.

I did a little internet digging and found that apple brown betty is a simple combination of bread, spices, nuts, and apples. Perfect, I can handle that and make it even easier- place it in a slow cooker so it’s ready by the time I’ve prepared and cleaned up dinner.

It really couldn’t be easier. Prep your ingredients in less than 10 minutes, place them in your crock pot and it’s ready after dinner!

Don’t have a slow-cooker? No worries. Place the ingredients in a casserole dish and bake in the oven.

    What a perfectly comforting, no-hassle treat! I actually have an electric multicooker, but have never yet used the slow cooker function. It’s always been about the quick-cooking features of a pressure cooker that attracted me to it, but now I’m dying to see how it does with a longer cooking recipe. Besides that, there’s always some stale bread on the counter or in the freezer, so this would be a perfect way to clean up a bit! ;)
