My new obsession is making individual desserts in cups. Let’s face it: you don’t want to bake an entire apple crumble just for yourself, especially if it’s going to take an hour.
However, it turns out there’s another option. A really easy option!
Chop an apple into smallish pieces and fill a mug almost to the brim with them. Add lemon juice if you have it. Eat the leftover apple. (If you really want to, you can peel the apple, but that seems like a lot of effort to me. Besides, leaving the skin on is healthier). Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of sugar, 1 teaspoon of water, and a pinch of cinnamon over the top.
Microwave for 2 minutes. Take it out, stir the apple, and microwave for another 2 minutes. (The mug will get hot – be careful). If the apple doesn’t seem as cooked as you’d like, microwave for another minute.
Meanwhile, put the following ingredients into a small bowl:
- 2 teaspoons margarine or softened butter
- 1 tablespoon flour
- 1 tablespoon oats
- 1/2 tablespoon brown sugar
- pinch of cinnamon
