Microwave Baked Apples
A classic fall treat in a fraction of the time.
- 2 medium apples
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons butter
Core the apples while making sure to leave the bottom intact.
Mix the brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small bowl. Spoon that mix into the core hole in the apples, then set at least a teaspoon of butter on top of each. Place the apples in a deep casserole dish and put a microwave-safe cover over them.
Microwave the apples for 3 1/2 to 4 minutes. They should be nice and tender. When the microwave's done, let the apples sit for a minute or two to cool off, then serve.
