  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C).
  2. Place diced apples and sweet potatoes in a microwave-safe glass or ceramic loaf pan. Sprinkle cinnamon and nutmeg over apple mixture; add enough water to leave 1/2-inch water in bottom of pan.
  3. Cook in microwave until the potatoes have softened are easily pierced with a fork, about 8 minutes; drain. Dot apple mixture with butter.
  4. Bake in preheated oven until potatoes and apples are completely softened, about 10 minutes.


  • Cook's Note:
  • Cook times may vary by microwave power and desired outcome. I wanted the dish a bit crispier but my husband said not to change a thing.
