Microwave Mug Apple Crisp ??? Yes and it is INSANE!!!!!

Hi Bold Bakers!

Each year, when fall rolls around, I get so excited for baking season! There is just nothing like cozying up in the kitchen to make homemade treats, with all of the seasons best ingredients. It goes without saying that one of the fall flavors we all know and love is apple. From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, and cooking varieties such as Bramley, there is no limit to our creativity. Now you can have an amazing apple dessert in minutes with my recipe for Microwave Mug Apple Crisp. You heard me right! Instead of making a traditional apple crisp I am making this classic recipe into a single serve, microwave mug treat.

This Microwave Mug Apple Crisp is perfect pretty much any time of day, a sweet breakfast, after school snack, or a late night treat! Just like me you probably have a few extra apples in your kitchen at this time of year. Instead of allowing them to perish, you can turn them into this comforting treat in under 10 minutes. To make my Microwave Mug Apple Crisp I simply dice up my apples and toss them in a bit of cinnamon and flour, just like a traditional apple crisp. I top my apple with a lovely crunchy topping made of oats, pecans, butter and sugar. You would not believe what these simple ingredients do when microwaved for just 2 minutes. The apples soften, and the crunchy topping crisps, and just like that, you have made the perfect, single serve, apple crisp.

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons (1 1/2oz/45g) butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 small apple , peeled diced
  • ½ tablespoon all purpose flour
  • ½ tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon

Instructions

  • In a small bowl stir in the oats,flour, pecans, brown sugar, cinnamon, and the salt.
  • Stir in the melted butter to create the crisp topping
  • Chop the apples small and toss them with the ½ tablespoon of flour, ½ tablespoon of the sugar, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
  • Take a Microwaveable mug and fill with the apple. You can fill the mug because the apples cook down.
  • Spoon the crisp mixture over the top.
  • Microwave for 2- 2 ½ minutes. the apples should be bubbling and the whole thing will reduce in size. Cooking time is based on my 1200W microwave so your timing might vary.
  • Carefully remove from the microwave and let stand until cool enough to eat. Be careful because it's going to be really hot at first!
  • Enjoy warm with vanilla ice cream
  • Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug.

I made the apple crisp in a mug tonight and although it is an excellent recipe – easy to make and so much better since it’s just my husband and I and we do not want a lot of leftover desserts sitting around. However, we both felt that it is too sweet and will have to adjust the brown sugar the next time. But in the meantime I will be make many other mug recipes. Thanks for providing such interesting methods. Probably next it will be breakfast items.

I’m so glad I found this site. I made the crisp tonight with blackberries that I bought on sale and didn’t know what to do with. It turned out great.

Your ingredients list includes cinnamon once but your instructions include using 1/4tsp twice. Could you clarify please?

I have never thought of making single serving pies! However, I do not use microwaves. Do you have temperature and time for toaster ovens or regular ovens? I don’t mind heating up my oven in the winter for small things, it helps warm the house.
