 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Bread crumbs
  • 1/4 c Margarine -- melted
  • 4 c Apple slices -- tart
  • 1/2 c Packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 ts Ground nutmeg
  • 1 Lemon -- juice and peel
  • 1/2 c Apple juice


* Use whole grain bread to make the crumbs. Substitute 1-2 tablespoons
wheat germ for equal amount of crumbs if preferred.

1. Prepare apples: peel, core and slice thinly to equal 4 cups. Use Granny
Smith or other tart apples. 2. Grate the rind of 1/2 of the lemon, being
careful not to include any of the pith just below the peel. Juice half the
lemon, or all if it is a small lemon. 3. Mix bread crumbs with melted
margarine and blend. 4. Mix sugar with nutmeg, lemon peel and juice; blend.
5. Grease a casserole dish with margarine. Put a layer of crumbs on bottom,
spread half the apples atop then half the sugar mixture. Put the rest of
the apples, then the sugar and top with remaining crumbs. Add 1/2 cup very
hot apple juice or water. Bake in preheated 350-degree oven for 40 minutes
or until done. Cover loosely with foil tent for first 20 minutes to prevent
crumbs browning too quickly.
