Dutch Oven Apple Betty Revisited

Last year Chuck, our resident Dutch oven expert. introduced us to the Apple Betty recipe. We loved the simplicity and convenience of it, but the flavor was out of this world good.

We appreciate Chuck’s humble approach to the Dutch oven. He has yet to mess up a recipe in his Dutch oven because he sticks to the basic principles, and then just waits for the food to “always work out.” And it always does for Chuck. We’re hoping some of his good vibes rub off on all of us as we venture into the world of Dutch ovens.

When we started looking at some ideas for Dutch oven goodies Chuck could share with us, he was so excited about this version of this “revisited” version of the Apple Betty. We knew we had to try it.

In medium-sized bowl mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt.


Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.


Scatter the mixture over the apples.

Chuck recommends serving it with a scoop of ice cream or whipped cream. The flavor is rich and the texture so gooey. This fills you up quick, so a little Apple Betty goes a long way.
