As I was sitting at the doctors' clinic (couple of months ago), waiting for my turn to be called in.
I grabbed few magazines, to kill time, usually it takes about 30-45 minutes before my name was called, even though I was on time (always on time and sometimes ahead of time ), unfortunate for me.... the doctor was never on time
Whilst flipping through, spotted few recipes I like but was too embarrassed to ask for some papers at the reception, so I did what most people with smart phone do!!!
... take photos
I have never heard of brown betty dessert before; raspberries, chocolate and ice-cream.... one word kept playing over and over again.... "Yummy...."
This is what Mr Wiki has to say about brown betty
A Brown Betty is a traditional American dessert made from fruit and sweetened crumbs. Similar to a cobbler or apple crisp, the fruit is baked and in this case the sweetened crumbs are in layers between the fruit.
I made these babes twice
First round: Dark chocolate Melt buttons was used and sprinkled with molasses (as per photo after recipe ...below)
E complained of dark chocolate (she is not a fan of dark chocolate!!!) and H complained its too dry!!!
Second round : Chopped dark chocolate for 3 of us and milk chocolate for hers. Sprinkled with raw sugar.
E was happy as I made hers with milk chocolate, but H, "Nah!!! I still don't like it"
(he doesn't like saviordi biscuits!!! period!!!)
Will I be making it again???
Yes... Brown Betty for THREE!!!
