Ingredients 1 apple
1 tablespoon sugar (any sugar is fine, but brown sugar is best or palm sugar if you prefer that flavour)
Pinch nutmeg (Optional)
Nob of butter
Dry raisins or sultanas (Optional)
Unsweetened Greek yogurt, to serve
Peel, core and quarter the apples. Halved looks the most decorative, but quartered is usually easier to eat. Arrange in a covered microwavable container.
If you are making several apples, then to stop the slices going brown while you peel and core the other apples, add some lemon juice to a bowl and water, and put the apple slices in the water.
Mix sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg (I love nutmeg with my apple, and add it to any apple recipe that already calls for cinnamon, but you can leave it out of the recipe if you prefer) in a small bowl and sprinkle the mixture over the apples. Don't worry if some falls off, it will mix with the butter when it melts to create the sauce.
Add a small knob of butter on top of each apple slice (margarine works too if you are out of butter).
Throw in a handful of the dried fruit. Be aware it is hard to overcook the apples, but if you overcook the dried fruit it may go hard. You can even add the dried fruit to the sauce after the apples have cooked.
Microwave on high for 3 to 4 minutes. If you have added the dried fruit err on the side of caution as it is easy to overcook the dried fruit.
Arrange the fruit pieces in a bowl. The melted butter and sugar will have formed a sauce, which you can spoon over the apple slices along with the dried fruit.
Add a dollop of yogurt to the bowl and serve immediately.
