Scalloped Apples

Ingredients

  • 1 small stale baker’s loaf.
  • ¼ cup butter.
  • 1 quart sliced apples.
  • ¼ cup sugar.
  • ¼ teaspoon grated nutmeg.
  • Grated rind and juice of ½ lemon.

Method

Cut loaf in halves, remove soft part, and crumb by rubbing through a colander; melt butter and stir in lightly with fork; cover bottom of buttered pudding-dish with crumbs and spread over one-half the apples, sprinkle with one-half sugar, nutmeg, lemon juice and rind mixed together; repeat, cover with remaining crumbs, and bake forty minutes in moderate oven. Cover at first to prevent crumbs browning too rapidly. Serve with sugar and cream.
