Microwave Baked Apple on a plate
Makes: 4 servings
Total Cost: $$$$

Here is a sweet apple treat that you can prepare in minutes in the microwave.

Ingredients

  • 4 apples (large, baking)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. Wash apples and remove core.
  3. Cut a thin slice off bottom of each apple to form a flat surface. Place apples in a microwave-safe baking dish.
  4. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon in a small dish. Spoon mixture into center of apples.
  5. Cover wax paper and microwave on high power 6 to 10 minutes or until apples are soft.

Notes

  • One pound apples = 3 medium apples = 3 cups sliced apples. This is good information to know at the grocery store.
  • Favorite varieties of apples for baking are Jonathan, Granny Smith, Braeburn, and Golden Delicious. Any tart apple works well.
  • Arrange the apples around the outside edge of the dish for more even cooking in the microwave.
  • Safety Tips: Wash the apples in clear running water before coring. If you have apples left, keep in the fridge for a handy snack later on.
