8 - Minute Microwave Apple Pie





Introduction: 8 - Minute Microwave Apple Pie

It has come to my attention that microwave dessert Instructables are becoming very popular...
Here are two of them, one is a cake & the other is a brownie. Since the Instructables are so popular I decided to bring out the old microwave apple pie recipe.

This Recipe Makes Four Servings.

Step 1: Prep.

Here are the ingredients you need:
  • 3 good sized apples
  • 2/3 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup of oats (whole or regular)
  • 1/2 cup of bisquick mix
  • 3 tablespoons of soft butter
  • 3/4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoons of nutmeg....

  • 1 fruit peeler
  • 1 8 in. pyrex (or other microwave safe) dish
  • 1 wooden spoon
  • 1 apple slicer
  • 1 bowl

Step 2: The Hard Part... :-[

This is definitely the hardest part of the cooking process...
Peeling the skins off the apples...

First, start by washing all of the apples in cold water.

Then, grab your fruit peeler, and start peeling from one side until you've gone all the way around the apple.

Now that you have finished peeling the apples, get the apple slicer and place it in the middle of the apple, as in picture 5.

Next, with a little aggressive force push down with two hands to slice the entire apple, as in picture 6.

Finally, place your sliced apples in the pyrex dish, picture 7.

Step 3: Mixing

After you have finished the last step, it's time to mix all of your remaining ingredients into your bowl.

Remember to mix these ingredients:
  • 2/3 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup of oats (whole or regular)
  • 1/2 cup of bisquick mix
  • 3 tablespoons of soft butter
  • 3/4 teaspoons of ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoons of nutmeg

To soften my butter, I put it in the microwave for about 12 seconds.

(tip) Use your wooden spoon to mix ingredients quicker.

Step 4: The Final Stretch...

Next, you will need to pour the contents of your mixing bowl onto the apples, see picture 1.

Then, place the pirex dish into the microwave for about 8-9 minutes.

After, the pie is done, take it out of the microwave and let it cool off for about two minutes, see picture 2.

Then, it's ready to serve...

I normally serve in a small bowl with ice cream. (see picture 3)

Step 5: Extra Step, Bisquick Alternative..

This is a step for people you can't get their hands on bisquick.

To make your own bisquick, mix the following ingredients until crumbly:

  • 2 3/4 cups sifted flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening

This makes 3 cups...

    great article. i experimented with the dish a little and made an indian version.
    here is the link to my experiment.
    thanks a lot again :). keep up the good work

    Made this tonight and it was EXCELLENT! Only needed 1/2 cup of the brown sugar and rolled oats though (trying to save calories, hee hee!), and found that you can add the butter cold, just like you do when baking in a conventional oven :) Thanks for the great 'ible!

    i have the same bowl as you but it is china!

    Thanks so much, I live for sweets!  I want to try with blueberries...I have  about 20 lbs in the fridge

    This was VERY delicous! (Even though i cheated and used pie filling =}) The "crust" is the perfect texture to appeal to the apples. And waddaya know? Ice cream made it EVEN BETTER! Keep up the great instructables TMDTK!

    Do the Bisquick and the oatmeal together make something that resembles a crust?

    It's really more of an apple crumble than an apple pie.

    My kids and I made this tonight and thought it was lovely! Thanks a million!
