Breadcrumb Apple Cake


A type of brown betty or apple crumble made with breadcrumbs.

This is one of the earliest references to any type of crumble.

Original Receipt from 'A Shilling Cookery for The People' By Alexis Soyer (Soyer 1845)

392. Apple Cake. - Butter a pie-dish near a quarter of an inch thick, throw in a large quantity of bread-crumbs, as much as will stick, when pressed well, on the butter; then have some apples already stewed down and sweetened, of which nearly fill the dish, put one ounce of butter in bits, cover over with bread-crumbs, also half an inch thick, put into hot oven; when done, pass a knife round and turn it out, sugar over, and glaze with a red-hot shovel.

If used hot, a little rum put round it and lighted is very nice.
