I’m back with another apple dish after brown betty, and this time it’s the single-serving apple crisp. Although it resembles Brown Betty in terms of fall flavors, it is not Brown Betty.:-)
Single serving desserts!
Don’t they satisfy your nocturnal sweet desires perfectly? Particularly microwave sweets, single-serving desserts are my favorite. Our favorite apple crisp is this one, and I occasionally make it for the kid as an after-school treat in the evening.
Kiddo like the flavor of cinnamon and always adds a lot of it to his breakfast. It goes without saying that his favorite dish is this apple crisp. not just his, but also ours.
Even though my husband and I are attempting to consume less sugar, we find it difficult to resist when I create large quantities of desserts. I choose these single-serving sweets instead. (PS – I do bake big batches for parties and potlucks)
Crisp Vs. Crumble Vs. Cobbler
Fruits can be used to make countless desserts, and the terms crisp, crumble, and cobbler are frequently used. What then is this?
These are traditional desserts, and much like any other recipe, there are numerous modifications and personal favorites for each home.
Nowadays, people often use the terms crisp and crumble interchangeably since they are so close. Fruits are sprinkled with oats or streusel topping and baked until they are soft and supple to create crisps and crumbles.
I always use oats to make my fruit crisp, and I use flour instead of oats to make my fruit crumble, which is more like to a streusel topping. (More about this topping in the future posts). Use any fruits you like, including berries, peaches, apples, etc.
Cobblers, a traditional American dessert in which the fruit is topped with a biscuit, shortbread, or pastry topping, come next. No, it’s not pie either because a cobbler’s bottom crust is absent.
Okay, I won’t get too deeply into this subject. All of these sweets are undoubtedly fantastic, and you will adore their flavors.
Apple crisp or apple crumble.
Call this dish apple crisp or crumble for now. This dessert can be made for one or two in less than 10 minutes thanks to how simple it is to put together and prepare in the microwave. You do indeed require 10 minutes.
I created two mini-bowls of apple crisp using one apple weighing around 178 grams, similar to the size pictured.
The chopped apples, sugar, flour, butter, and allspice or any other spice of your choosing are first combined to make the apple layer. The apples must first be melted in the microwave; if you are grating the apples, omit this step. After that, stir in the oats crisp mixture and re-microwave. Three minutes is the entire microwave time!
My version of apple crisp
In this recipe, I’ve significantly cut back on the sugar and butter. I cut back on the sugar since I like to bring out the sweetness of the fruits. We like it best this way because the crisp combination wasn’t dry.
The cooking time of 3 minutes for this recipe in my 900W microwave worked great for me. However, the cooking time may change based on the power and setting of your microwave. Adjust the timing after checking the apples for doneness. The ideal stage is when they are soft and delicate.
You can find hints and modifications in the recipe notes.
The butter’s temperature is crucial in this situation. For the apple layer, we need melted butter, whereas the crisp mixture requires softened butter. I typically melt the butter in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds after softening it for 10 seconds.
Serving and storing.
Similar to brown betty, you can either serve it plain or with ice cream or whipped cream on top. Since it’s a dessert for one, I haven’t kept them in the refrigerator for very long. We immediately enjoy them.
I use ramekins that have lids. I have only chilled them for a maximum of four hours so far. Not any more, though. Bring it to room temperature and reheat in the microwave for 10 to 15 seconds prior to serving.
- For the apple layer, you can substitute ground cinnamon for the allspice. Alternately, add allspice to the crisp and apple layer. You can change the amount of spice to suit your tastes. I always add more ground cinnamon and allspice because we enjoy their flavor.
- The crisp’s butter content has been significantly decreased. You may use up to 2 to 2.5 tbsp of softened butter in this amount. Make sure the butter for the crisp mixture is not melting.
- The crisp was not dry when 1 tbsp of butter was added, and it was very delicious when served with ice cream. You can microwave your crisp for 20 to 30 seconds after adding 1/2 to 1 tbsp of melted butter if you think it’s too dry.
- Whenever I make ramekins, I often chop the apples rather than slice them. Apples can also be tried by slicing or shredding them.
- Brown sugar is highly recommended for this crisp; adjust the amount of sugar to your taste.
- Depending on the power level of your microwave, the cooking time may change. Adjust the timing after checking the apples for doneness. The ideal stage is when they are soft and delicate.
- I enjoy eating apple crisp made with red, gala, or honey crisp apples as well as brown-betty. You might choose to use granny smith or another type of apple.

HEALTH BENEFITS OF APPLES
Apples are one of the most commonly consumed fruits worldwide, and they are known for their nutritional value and various health benefits. Here are five health benefits of apples:
- Heart health: Apples contain a high amount of soluble fiber, which helps to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels. They also contain flavonoids, which have antioxidant properties that may help to prevent heart disease by reducing inflammation and oxidative stress.
- Digestive health: Apples are rich in fiber, which can help to regulate bowel movements and prevent constipation. They also contain pectin, a type of soluble fiber that acts as a prebiotic and feeds the beneficial bacteria in the gut, promoting overall digestive health.
- Blood sugar control: Apples have a low glycemic index, meaning they release sugar slowly into the bloodstream, which helps to prevent spikes in blood sugar levels. They also contain polyphenols, which have been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes.
- Immune system support: Apples contain vitamin C, an antioxidant that plays a crucial role in the immune system by protecting cells from damage caused by free radicals. Vitamin C also helps to stimulate the production of white blood cells, which are responsible for fighting infections.
- Cancer prevention: Apples contain flavonoids, which have been shown to have anti-cancer properties by reducing oxidative stress and inflammation. They also contain quercetin, a type of flavonoid that has been shown to induce apoptosis (programmed cell death) in cancer cells and inhibit the growth of tumors. Additionally, the high fiber content of apples has been associated with a reduced risk of colon cancer.
