Apples, maple syrup and cinnamon are microwaved, then pureed, for quick and easy apple butter that's great on any fresh baked good, or sandwich.


  1. In a microwave safe bowl, combine apples, maple syrup and cinnamon.
  2. Microwave on high for 15 minutes. Transfer mixture to a blender and process until smooth. Return mixture to bowl and microwave 5 minutes more. Cool and transfer to a jar. Store in refrigerator.

This was much quicker and easier than my regular apple butter, done in the crockpot, which I haven't had time for. It comes out a little runnier than normal, closer to applesauce, but it will be good for those recipes that take apple butter in them. I would add a bit more spices next time to kick it up a bit.

This is extremely easy. I didn't even peel or slice the apples very thin. The blender makes it really smooth and the microwave makes it fast. I made it with sugar free syrup and it turned out great! It will be a great present for my mom who is diabetic. THANKS!
