Joe Tilden's Apple Brown Betty

Cover the bottom of a baking dish with bread crumbs, over which place a layer of thinly sliced tart apples. Sprinkle thickly with sugar and small pieces of butter, cinnamon and nutmeg, then cover with bread crumbs and repeat the layers until the dish is filled, having a layer of crumbs sprinkled with bits of butter on top. Then pour over all three-quarters of a cup of molasses thinned with a little hot water.

Bake until the apples are tender and the top is well browned.

This vintage recipe is from "Joe Tilden's Recipes for Epicures", 1907. Major Joseph Tilden was in his time one of the most famous Bohemians and epicureans of the Pacific Coast.
