Apple Beggar Dessert (Apfelbettelmann)

This wonderful dessert is a German recipe that resembles the American recipe for Apple Brown Betty. Actually it's Apple Brown Betty on flavor steroids.

In addition to apples, this dessert contains dark rum soaked dried currants and sports the stronger flavor of pumpernickel bread crumbs over the plain white.

There are a few steps in prepping this dessert. However, once you have the crumbs and the apples prepared, it's a cinch to come together. Apple Beggar is best served warm right out of the baking dish. When topped with vanilla ice cream, well, what can I say but wow. A absolutely perfect fall dessert.
