About this recipe: Apple Betty is a classic American pudding. It's essentially an apple crumble, perfect paired with custard or ice cream. Instead of apples you can use fresh berries, though apple is traditionally used in this dessert.

You do not need orange juice !! Use water. The apple is the main flavour not orange. This is an old English/Irish/Scotish recipe. My Grand Fathers favourate. I have been making this same recipe fore close on 60years. Love it. Old is new again. Enjoy. - 17 Sep 2012
