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.
