I've been cooking apples in the microwave for years. It didnt say to peel the apples, but I always do. The one thing that I didn't care about with this recipe is that the apples are on the dry side. If you add a little water right at the beginning, this will help. The recipe says "diced," and I went ahead and diced them, but I simply didn't like them this small (personal preference), and will go back to cutting them into larger chunks in the future...takes a little longer, but not much. And your cooking time will depend on the power of your microwave plus the size of the apple pieces. Read More

I'm giving it a 5 because I wouldn't have even thought of doing this in the microwave. I had pink lady apples, not Galas, and even with 2 mins cooking they weren't oven soft. But raw apples hurt my teeth, and I could probably put them in another minute if I want. I did add a bit of butter to this and used light brown sugar instead. Yummy! I may use Truvia next time so this becomes a healthier alternative. Thanks! Read More

I made this recipe and it is delicious! It makes a very simple fast and yummy breakfast for the mornings. However this dish tastes better if you microwave it for one to one and a half minutes longer to get that sort of syrup at the bottom of your bowl. Also if you want it to be more healthy leave out the sugar it will taste very much the same. Read More
