5 Minute Apple Crisp for One

5 Minute Apple Crisp for One


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:

  1. It is not in a mug, and
  2. 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.

  1. This looks delicious! I love the single serving aspect of it. Whenever I make anything like this, I am always kind of over it after the first few days and it ends up getting thrown away and wasted. This is such a great way to avoid that!

  3. First micro-crumble recipe I have seen! It looked delicious though, and it seems that the apple stewed really well here too :D It looks fantastic, and if you could whip up this as simple as that - I'd say it's make a legit breakfast :D Yum! I actually just posted up a recipe for a banana crumble, but...y'know, the oven version, maybe you can microfy it ;) I hope you have an amazing weekend! xx

  10. Hi Cathleen,

    To me, cooking for one is tough... Cooking with small amount can be a challenging task but you have managed to do it so well for your past posts. Well done!

  13. Gorgeous! And I love that you can make it in the microwave. So easy it could almost be dangerous!

  14. One year old apples?! I never knew that but I guess it makes sense since to have apples all year round they have to be stored or imported. I love your individual desserts!

  16. Really like the idea of a speedy apple crisp! Particularly one where I don't have to make a whole pan of it (which I'd eat way too much of!). This looks great -- thanks.
