Easy Microwave Baked Apple Recipe

Sharing is caring!

This microwave baked apple recipe is fast and easy and oh-so good with cinnamon and raisins.  Start with a slightly tart apple such as a Fuji, Gala or Honeycrisp.  You could also try a more tart apple like Granny Smith.  Remove the core using an apple corer or paring knife.  Peel away the top 1/2″ or so of apple peel.

In a small bowl, mix together the filling:

1 tsp raisins
1 Tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp butter

Pack filling into core of apple. Sprinkle apple with cinnamon.

Place apple in a microwave-safe bowl. Pour 1/2 cup water gently into the bowl. Cover bowl with a lid or plastic wrap, leaving a little space or steam to escape. Microwave on high for 5 minutes or until apple is soft. Place apple on a clean bowl or plate and spoon some of the cooking juices over the top. Serve warm.
