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.
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/
