Microwave Breakfasts : Peach Oatmeal



Now that I am hosting a microwave cooking event, I think it's time I bring out some quick and easy recipes I have been thinking of trying for a while. The first in the series is my take on that old favorite, apple crumble. With lovely peaches in season, I thought of trying a peach crumble version in the microwave.

First I chopped one peach and arranged it in a glass bowl. Then sprinkled some sugar and microwaved the peach for one minute. While the peach was cooking, I mixed 2 tbsp oats, 1/2 tbsp plain flour, a tbsp of butter and just a pinch of sugar. I brought out the cooked peach and spread the oats and flour mixture to cover the fruit. Put it back in the microwave for a minute. When I took it out, the oats and flour didn't look quite cooked so I put it back in for another 30 seconds.

Guess what? The crumble (hope I can call it one) was crisp and so, so delicious. So maybe it's time you took out that stove top or oven cooking breakfast recipe and give it a shot in the microwave. You just might discover a newer, quicker favorite.

hi! this sounds good considering how good the peaches are this season.
Did you use quick cooking oats? And do you have any suggestions (easy ones please!) on how to use the sour cherries in season right now/
