So is a “Brown Betty” a bread, cobbler, or pudding? Or should it demand a recipe category of its own? I have placed this recipe in the Bread Section, because it is more of a Bread-Pudding to me. This handwritten recipe from the Verdin collection is for a Skillet Applesauce Brown Betty. This Brown Betty recipe is made with cinnamon-raisin bread cubes and served with a topping made with butter, orange zest, and confectioners’ sugar.
