Apple and breadcrumbs layer cake

I had some stale bread in the fridge, and some apples which both of us love best baked :)
My recipe for a tasty apple-y breakfast-
4 medium sized apples - chopped
2 tsp lemon juice
1 tsp nutmeg / cinnamon
6 tbsps sugar / honey
6 tbsps butter
1 tsp orange zest (use lemon zest if you have, i didn't)
Combine well and keep aside.

Stale bread- 10 slices crumb-ed
4 tbsps sugar
4 tbsps butter

Combine well in a bowl and keep aside.

Take your greased baking dish, I used a square one. First layer with the apple mix adding the juice also. Now add the bread crumbs layer softly pressing on top of the apple mix. Repeat this, with the crumbs layer on top the last. (I made 2 apple layers and 2 crumb layers)

Bake at 180 deg for 35-40 mins till top has browned. Let cool.

It tasted really nice out of the oven, the crispiness of the bread and the gooey apples :)

Serve for breakfast with a glass of hot milk or serve as dessert with icecream :)
