Recipe: Microwave Raspberry Crisp

microwave raspberry apple crisp recipeOne of my favourite desserts is fruit crisp. In the fall I love apple crisp — the nutmeg and cinnamon aromas that fill the house while it’s baking and the tang of the apple that goes so well with the sweet topping. Right now however, a berry crisp seems more in-keeping with the season (though since I use frozen berries this could be made any time of the year).

This single-serving recipe takes just 5-10 minutes to prepare and “bake” in the microwave. It’s perfect to satisfy a sweet tooth without making a big crisp (that sits in the fridge and becomes un-crispy). I prefer the recipe with apple, as it is more moist and goes better with the cinnamon and nutmeg in the topping, but raspberry crisp is a close second.

(based on:

  • frozen raspberries (or peeled, sliced apple -- sprinkled with cinnamon and brown sugar)
  • 1 tbsp (or just 10 g) butter or margarine (microwave for a few seconds to soften)
  • 1 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 heaping tbsp flour
  • 0.25 c quick oats
  • cinnamon, nutmeg, (optional: pinch of cloves)
Put the fruit in a microwavable bowl. In a separate bowl mix the topping ingredients. Spread the topping on top of the fruit. Microwave for 2 - 2.5 minutes (raspberry — beware of burning since less moist!) or 5 min (apple — until apples are soft and topping is crispy).
