Save Recipe

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.

Serves: 1
Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons (1½oz/45g) butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons oats
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt

  • ½ tablespoon all purpose flour

  2. Stir in the melted butter to create the crisp topping
  3. Chop the apples small and toss them with the ½ tablespoon of flour, ½ tablespoon of the sugar, and ¼ teaspoon cinnamon.
  4. Take a Microwaveable mug and fill with the apple. You can fill the mug because the apples cook down.
  5. Spoon the crisp mixture over the top.
  6. 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.
  7. 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!
  8. Enjoy warm with vanilla ice cream
  9. Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug.

Cooking time will vary greatly depending on your microwave and the width and depth of the mug. The mugs I use are small, roughly 6oz (¾ /1 cup)

This pie can be made 24 hours in advance so you can have them ready for a party

    Amazing

  3. JohnnyBoy! on January 29, 2018 at 6:03 pm

    Wow! Just Wow!
    No, wait.
    WOW! JUST WOW!!!!
    I’m a huge fan of, desserts-for-one, and apples. Your recipe checked all the boxes, and was delicious and gone in no time.
    I highly recommend this to anyone that enjoys apple desserts! I made it according to the recipe, except for one minor thing, I added a little extra cinnamon and a touch of ground cloves, and my favorite… extra pecans.
    But, between the two, I am positive that your recipe is the best!!!
    Thank you for such a great dessert!

    What do you do with the 2 tablespoons of flour and 2 tablespoons brown sugar? It is in the ingredient list but not in instructions as is the tablespoon of each.

    • Gemma Stafford on January 6, 2018 at 5:33 am

      Hi Lois,
      I went back to this recipe and corrected it, thank you for pointing it out. You add the flour and sugar with the dry ingredients,
      Gemma 🙂

    Can we use walnuts instead in pecans in microwave mug apple crisp?

    • Gemma Stafford on November 4, 2017 at 10:36 am

      Hi Nisha,
      Yes, these are a great substitute, they are a similar, tender nut. Buy the best you can find, fresh as possible,
      Gemma 🙂

    Saw you on channel nine this morning and went to the website. These mug recipes are perfect for me since I am a senior and don’t want to always have to make full sized recipe. I am looking forward to using lots of your mug meals.

    • Gemma Stafford on November 2, 2017 at 5:22 am

    • Gemma Stafford on October 23, 2017 at 3:11 am

      Haha! Chloe, a little sweet treat always cures your ills!
      Actually I think it is the act of baking, which is a mindful activity, which helps to cheer us up.
      Good for you, carry on baking,
