About this recipe: I don't usually like 'baking' with the microwave, but this recipe works great. The topping comes out crispy on top, moist inside - simply delicious! It's a dessert that's quick and easy to make, too. Best served warm with vanilla ice cream or natural yogurt.
Something else. The second time I did this I changed the method .......1. Firstly mix the apple with 1 tbsp water and some sugar and microwave on high heat covered for 3 minutes. Stir. .......2. Mix topping, put on top of apples and cook on medium heat uncovered for 7 minutes. .......3. Leave to stand for 3 minutes before eating I found that this cooked th eapples better without the topping overcooking - 22 Apr 2009
The quantities of the ingredients were perfect in this recipes but I adjusted the cooking times in the microwave the second time I tried tto make this as the first time the crumble seemed to 'burn' in my microwave...but its a great time saving recipe! - 22 Apr 2009
If you are using pre-cooked Fruit, try Microwaving the Crumble separately for about 5 Minutes, forking and sampling as you go then there won't be a burning problem. I have just had a nice crispy Rhubarb Crumble without the usual uncooked soggy bottom. Crumble quantities above are enough for 2 servings, I have saved one in my Fridge. - 15 Sep 2013
