Courgette and Apple Brown Betty

This is surprisingly really really tasty. I'd never seen anything like it before but my sister gave my mum a courgette cookbook as a present from her holiday in the States and I went through and photocopied several recipes including this one. You can't really taste the courgette, it just adds another lovely texture.

Courgette and Apple Brown Betty (from Old Fashioned Zucchini and Squash Recipes)
(Serves 2)

150g dry breadcrumbs
75g butter, melted
1 large courgette, grated
200g brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp grated lemon rind
2 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp water

Preheat the oven to 180C.

Combine the breadcrumbs and melted butter in a bowl. Press half the mixture into the bottom of a baking dish.

In another bowl combine grated courgette and sliced apples. Arrange half of them over the breadcrumbs.

Mix together the sugar, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt and lemon juice and rind and spread half over the apples.

Sprinkle with half the lemon juice and water. Repeat the process with the rest of the mixture. Cover the dish and bake for 40 mins.

Remove the cover, increase the heat to 200C for 15 mins. Serve with ice cream.
