I am not a big fan of Microwave Cooking. I use Microwave sparingly and it’s mostly for reheating food. Microwave Apples were a revelation to me. I found many recipes for Microwave Apple Crisps, Apple Cobbler, Baked Apples and so on. Unlike the normal Conventional Oven, you can bake apples in the Microwave within minutes. So, I decided to try my luck with a few Golden Delicious Apples I had. The outcome was simply yummy. This is one of the easiest desserts I have prepared.
We have also had this for breakfast and as a quick evening snack. You need to use really Sweet Apples for this recipe and it will taste delicious. What better way to finish your apples?
- Apples (Any Sweet Variety) – 4 small (I used Golden Delicious Apples)
- All Purpose Flour – 2 tbsp
- Brown Sugar – 1 tbsp
- Sugar – 1 to 2 tbsp
- Milk – 3/4 cup
- Ginger Powder – 1/4 + 1/4 tsp
- Cinnamon Powder – 1/4 tsp
For the Topping
- Keebler Club Crackers (Original/Reduced Fat/Multi Grain) – 5 to 6 pieces
- Brown Sugar – 1 tsp
- Milk – 1/4 cup
- Honey Roasted Peanuts – A handful (optional)
- Peel the apples and slice it into small uniform pieces.
- Mix these apple pieces with 2 tbsp flour, 1/4 tsp Ginger Powder, 1/4 tsp Cinnamon Powder and 1 tbsp Brown Sugar.
- Spread the apple pieces in a large Microwave Safe Dish and microwave it for 3-4 minutes until the apples are tender.
- Meanwhile, mix 3/4 cup of milk, 1/4 tsp of ginger powder and 1-2 tbsp sugar in a bowl.
- Pour milk over the apples and microwave for another 3 minutes.
- The apples would have absorbed most of the milk by now. Mix everything together.
- Crumble the crackers using your hands and spread it over the apple & milk mixture. Sprinkle a few tablespoons of milk and 1 tsp brown sugar on top of the crackers.
- Continue to microwave the mixture for 4 minutes and allow it to cool.
- Serve this yummy dessert along with a handful of honey roasted peanuts (optional).
- If you do not have Club Crackers, you can substitute it with 2 Slices of Bread or Cookies and it will still taste good.
- Feel free to increase or decrease the amount of sugar.
