Our Apple Charlotte Dessert is an easier alternative to apple pie or crumble. Dempster’s® 100% Whole Wheat Bread takes the place of batter and you can use your favourite apple pie filling and granola for a no-fuss dessert you can whip up when pressed for time. Serves four.


10 slices Dempster's® 100% Whole Wheat Bread  1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, at room temperature  3 cups (750 mL) apple pie filling  1/2 cup (125 mL) granola 


Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Generously butter four 6-oz (175 mL) ramekins; set aside.  With rolling pin, roll each slice bread into 1/4-inch (1 mm) thickness. Cut out four 3-inch (8 cm) rounds to line bottom of each ramekin. Cut twelve 4 x 2 1/2-inch (10 x 7 cm) rectangles to line sides of ramekins, overlapping slightly.  Fill each bread-lined ramekin with apple pie filling and sprinkle with granola. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.   Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until golden brown and bubbling. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
