In this variation of the humble dessert, two types of apples are used so it's not too sweet or tart.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

Combine first 3 ingredients in a large bowl. Sprinkle apple mixture with granulated sugar, cinnamon, and nutmeg; toss well. Combine milk, molasses, and vanilla in a medium bowl. Add bread to milk mixture; toss to combine. Add bread mixture to apple mixture; toss to combine. Spoon bread mixture into an 8-inch square baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Step 3

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour and brown sugar; cut in chilled butter using a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles small pebbles. Sprinkle brown sugar mixture over apple mixture. Bake at 350° for 40 minutes or until golden and bubbly. Serve warm.

Absolutely delicious recipe. It's a Christmas staple at my house. Great for company or to give to neighbors on a cold winter morning. We make it every year.

I made this the other day and my husband and teenage son loved it. It was pretty easy to put together. I used Granny Smith. I thought the flavor of molasses was a little strong, but I think that just may be personal preference. Next time I will crumble bread into smaller pieces so that the molasses gets spread around more. Mine did not look like the picture -- my topping melted a lot more and was not crumbly. Still, if my guys love it, I call it a keeper. I will definitely make it again.
