Microwave "baked" Apple for One

READY IN: 10mins


  • 1
    large apple, cored (whatever type you like, peel if desired)
  • 1 12
    tablespoons brown sugar (or white sugar, or splenda i suppose)
  • 2
    pinches cinnamon


  • prep your apple and place in a small bowl so the hole through the core is up.
  • fill hole with sugar and cinnamon, can also add or substitute pumpkin/apple pie spice or cloves. add raisins if you like, drizzle of maple syrup, whatever.
  • wrap tightly over the bowl with good quality plastic wrap. it must be air tight or this wont work. microwave on high for 5 min.
  • the plastic wrap will have made a big bubble as it cooks, this is normal. it works like a steamer to cook the apple fast. when taken from the microwave (WITH POT HOLDERS) it will shrink wrap your apple, it's kinda fun to watch. now keeping those pot holder on, carefully pull off the plastic wrap with a fork, mind the live steam.
  • let it cool for five min, serve alone or with ice cream, crumbled cookies, or a bit of evaporated milk.
  • repeat until you have no apples or your stomach explodes.
