Denise’s Quick and Easy ‘Baked’ Apple Recipe

Quick and Easy Baked Apples

My five kiddos love all types of fresh fruit and that makes me very happy, but sometimes we get a little bored and want to spice it up a little. This method of “baking” apples in the microwave is super fast and easy, it only takes a few ingredients and you can make as much or as little as you like. We also have a favorite restaurant that serves “fried apples” and when the kids decide it’s time to go eat out but momma isn’t ready I can usually appease them by making them these apples at home – win, win!

Won’t the bag melt? I have put plastic bags in Microwave for like 40 seconds and they melt together.

I really like this idea but I am thinking a glass bowl (with a lid) would be a safer choice. :)

I think the idea is great but, is it safe to heat food in a plastic bag? What about the chemicals that leach into the food?

I made this with 5-6 apples, peel on in Corningware and skipped the cornstarch. Loved it!
