The original Brown Betty recipe, using breadcrumbs, originated in late 19th-century America, and was probably a frugal way of using up stale bread and windfall apples. The winning combination of apples, sugar and spices rarely fails, and this quinoa-rich recipe is no exception. Here quinoa flakes replace the breadcrumbs.
Replace the apples with seasonal pears and dark (bittersweet) chocolate chips, if you prefer, layered with the spiced quinoa mixture.
