  • 8 tart apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1/4 cup sugar, brown or white
  • fresh grated nutmeg to taste
  • juice and grated rind of half a lemon
  • buttered homemade bread, crumbled, about 4 slices
  • 1/2 cup hot water


Sprinkle the apples with the sugar, nutmeg, lemon juice and rind. Place alternate layers of apple and breadcrumbs (ending with a crust of crumbs) in a well buttered baking dish. Pour the hot water over the dish and bake for an hour in a slow oven (325 degrees F); uncover the dish for the last 10 minutes. Serve hot with a pitcher of rich cream or with hard sauce.
