While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
It's a good bet that we'll be celebrating October 5, otherwise known as National Apple Brown Betty Day.
An apple brown betty is a cross between a cobbler and a bread pudding. This popular, colonial-era baked pudding is made by alternating baked apples with buttered or sweetened bread crumbs.
Some recipes call for apple cider to be added to the layers, others lemon juice. Most season the apples with cinnamon, a traditional pie spice.
Like pie, an apple brown betty is best served with a scoop of ice cream or fresh whipped cream.
