6 Baking Apples, I used Macintosh, peeled, cored, & diced
1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
6 Slices White Bread, stale
2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
6 Tablespoons Softened Butter
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla
1 Tablespoon Flour
1/3 Cup Apple Cider or Apple Juice, I use Cider
1, Buttered Deep Dish 9"Inch Pie Pan
In a large deep bowl place the Lemon Juice. As you peel, core & dice each apple immediately place the diced apple into the lemon juice & stir. This keeps your apples from browning. Once all the apples are in the juice add, the brown sugar, flour, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, the salt & vanilla, stir until well combined.
Now take each slice of bread & butter one side liberally with the soft butter, sprinkle generously with granulated sugar, & sprinkle with cinnamon, Flip bread over & repeat. Now go to the next slice & do the same. Stack each piece of finished bread on top of each other. Do this until finished. Now cut through the stack & make bread cubes, place into a bowl as you cube.
|This is the size of bread cubes you will need & you can see how I have them cinnamon & sugared!|
Now place 1/3 of the bread cubes into your prepared pie pan. Place 1/2 of the apple mixture over the bread.
Layer another layer of bread cubes then the rest of the apple mixture, finish with the bread cubes.
Now drizzle the apple cider or juice over the top, evenly! Bake in a preheated oven for 1 hour! Serve warm or room temperature, with Whipped Cream, Vanilla Ice Cream, Milk, or plain!
