With the holidays right around the corner, I have a desire to start them a few months early.  Two of my favorite fall foods and scents are long overdue: pumpkin and apples.

I could eat these two items year round, though they both seem more popular from September to November.  But it’s August and I’m not waiting much longer to indulge in a little fall treat.

I came up with a way to make a quick and easy cinnamon apple recipe that can be microwaved in 2 short minutes.  You can make this for one person or an entire family.  You can thank me later.

(The recipe below is for one apple, so just adjust as needed.)

  • 1 apple
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • a dash of cinnamon

Start by washing the outside of your apple with vinegar to get rid of germs and wax.

Core the center and take a light slice from the top.

Mix together the cinnamon, sugar, and butter, then add it into the center of the apple and spread it on the top.  You can add a little more cinnamon, too.

In a microwave safe bowl, heat the apple for 2 minutes.  Microwave times may vary, so check the apple to make sure it’s soft.

When it’s done, it will be hot!  I mean HOT!  So use caution when removing from the microwave.  After the apple cools for a minute, spoon some of the cinnamon sugar mixture back onto the top of the apple.  I like to slice the apple up, then stir everything together before serving.
