Cooking and baking in suite 611 is going to be brought to a whole new level…I bought ramekins and toaster oven supplies! Toaster ovens can do lots of things but they can’t be fully taken advantage of without the proper equipment. I ordered a package of supplies – a 6 muffin tin, a baking sheet, and a tray that all fit in the toaster oven.
Now let’s talk about apples. Apples are no doubt the most popular fruit of Autumn. After all, it is the season for apple picking, apple pies, and caramel apples. This fresh, crisp fruit has countless health benefits. They contain lots of fiber, Vitamins A and C, and pectin. Apples keep you full for a long time with few calories, are good for your immune system, and the pectin helps reduce cholesterol levels.
A while ago, I baked apple crisps served in an apple (similar to Easy Individual Peach Crumble) since I didn’t have any baking dishes back then. I made it at night so the pictures did not turn out so great, but I’ll post one so you can get an idea.
They turned out SO delicious and I’ve been meaning to recreate it but haven’t had the chance. When my ramekins arrived the other day, I thought it would be perfect to make an easy fruit crumble so I chopped up some apples and added some oats and put it in the toaster oven for several minutes.
Apple crumble is a perfect way to enjoy a warm, healthy fruit dessert during these chillier days of Fall. We’ve all heard the saying “An apple a day keeps the doctor away” maybe one too many times but it still holds true so I’m going to be on the search for many more recipes I can use apples in. 😀
ONE SERVING APPLE CRUMBLE
1 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons old-fashioned rolled oats
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1 medium apple, diced in 1/4-inch cubes
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Combine all the crumble ingredients until they are mixed well.
In a ramekin, microwave diced apples and butter for one minute to soften apples.
Add sugar and cinnamon, stirring to coat evenly. Sprinkle with crumble topping and put in the toaster oven at 300 degrees F for 5 minutes or until the top is golden brown. (You can also microwave it for 2 minutes).
