Microwave Baked Apples

  • Currently 4/5
The classic baked apple, made super-easy in the microwave...
4 large Rome or Cortland apples (about 10-oz each)
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup quick-cooking oats, uncooked
2 Tbsp raisins
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 tsp butter or margarine
1. Core apples, cutting out a 1 1/4 inch diameter cylinder from center of each, cutting almost but not all the way through to bottom.  Remove peel from top third of each apple.  Place apples in shallow 1 1/2 quart ceramic casserole or microwave-safe 8-inch square baking dish.
2. In small bowl, combine brown sugar, oats, raisins, and cinnamon.  Fill apple cavities with equal amounts of oat mixture.  (Mixture will spill over top of apples).  Dot each apple with 1/2 tsp butter.
3. Microwave apples, covered, on medium-high (70% power) until tender, 12-14 minutes, turning each apple halfway through cooking time.  To serve, spoon cooking liquid from baking dish over apples.
