I think you know that I have a problem when 3 out of my past 5 blog posts have been a mug cake of some sort.
Is there a "mug cakes anonymous" I can attend? Somehow I think that I would be the only one there.
But I am cleverly disguising this creation as a "not-so-mug cake", because:
- It is not in a mug, and
- It is not a cake.
So is it that I am addicted to my microwave? Well, with summer approaching, I probably want to stay as far away from my oven as possible. This is just practice for when the unbearable heat makes it too uncomfortable to bake anything.
(Like that would stop me..)
Of course the first apple crisp I ever make in my life is a "mug cake-esque" kind.
But today I also learned a really interesting fact. Did you know that apples that you buy from the grocery store are usually around one year old?
It makes you wonder why as soon as you bring them home, they suddenly want to die.
But this just means that I'll have apples that need using, and I always like the challenge. I think that from now on when I have apples that I need using, I will make this my go-to recipe. This is because it is both easy and really quick to make.
And what more could I want in a dessert? Maybe next time I will top this with ice cream. Then this will be the ultimate dessert.
5 Minute Apple Crisp for One
What you'll need:
- 2 tablespoons rolled oats
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 apple, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
- In a small bowl, mix together the oats, flour, sugar, melted butter and cinnamon until fuly incorporated. Set aside.
- In a mug or a ramekin, layer the sliced apples on the bottom. Microwave for 30 seconds.
- Remove from the microwave and sprinkle the oat mixture on top. Microwave for an additional 2 minutes.
