1 cup (250 ml) finely ground dried bread crumbs
3 tbsp sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tbsp butter

2. Mix bread crumbs with sugar and cinnamon and toast golden brown in a frying pan with the melted butter. Cool

3. Beat cream stiff.

4. Layer applesauce, crumbs and cream in a large serving bowl and top with whipped cream. Serve at once.
