EASY Baked Apple Slices

As you slice up the apples, check for their flavor. If they don't taste good raw, believe me, they aren't going to taste good cooked.

  • Prep time: 10 minutes
  • Cook time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: Serves 2

Ingredients

  • 4 cups of peeled, sliced apples - use apples that cook up well, like Fuji or Jonagold
  • 3 Tbsp sugar
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp maple syrup

Method

1 Sprinkle apples with cinnamon and sugar: Put apple slices in a glass bowl. Sprinkle on top the 3 Tbsp of sugar. Add a light sprinkle of cinnamon.

2 Microwave on high for 5 minutes or more: Bake in microwave oven for 5 minutes on high heat. Adjust the time for your microwave and how many apples you are doing. Ours has a powerful high setting so 4 cups of apples only takes 5 minutes.

If you use more apples, you will probably need to cook it a little longer. I suggest starting with 5 minutes and testing for doneness with a fork. If it needs more cooking time, give it more.

3 Add maple syrup to taste: When done, remove and mix so the sugar coats well all the apple pieces. Add maple syrup to taste, about 1 Tbsp.

Delicious with whipped cream on top, or with vanilla ice cream on the side.
