Microwave Apple Crumble Mug



  • 2 (about 250g) apples, peeled, cored, cut into 1cm pieces
  • 2 tsp sultanas
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp plain flour
  • 2 tbsp rolled oats
  • 2 tsp butter
  • Thick custard, to serve


    1. Place the apple, sultanas, 1 tablespoon of the brown sugar, half the cinnamon, and 3 teaspoons of water in a 375ml (1 1/2 cups) microwave-safe mug. Cover with plastic wrap and cook on high for 2 minutes, stirring halfway, or until the apple has softened.
    2. Meanwhile, place the flour, oats, butter, remaining sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Use your fingertips to rub until the mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
    3. Sprinkle oat mixture over the apples and microwave on high for 1 minute or until hot. Stand for 2 minutes before serving with custard.
