Before you start

For best results use a crisp tart apple, such as Granny Smith, Honeycrisp, Idared, Pink Lady, Spartan or McIntosh, or a mixture of any or all of these for more texture and flavor. A food processor will be very useful for this recipe.


  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Lightly butter a 9 in (23 cm) pie dish.
  2. Peel and slice the apples then toss with lemon juice and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. Place them in the bottom of the buttered pie dish. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a food processor, process bread until coarse crumbs form, about 15 sec. Transfer the bread crumbs to a bowl. Stir in the remaining brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and butter. Combine well then scatter the crumb mixture on top of the apples.
  4. Cover the dish with aluminum foil and bake in the middle of the oven for 30 min. Remove foil and allow to continue cooking until the topping is crisp and lightly brown, and the apples are tender, about 10 additional minutes.
  5. Serve warm or cold.
