Friday's Kid Tested Recipe: "Baked" Apples with Raisins

I hate sneaking food into my children's diets, so I thought I would share some of the recipes that I make with my kids (ages 4 &2)! When kids help cook, they rarely avoid the food because they helped to make it! I'll try to note steps that even the youngest children can help with in the kitchen!

Baked Apple Prior to Cooking

What you'll need to make it!
Apples (core the center out using an apple corer or a sharp knife - it doesn't need to be perfect) - we like Granny Smith or Red Delicious, but your favorite will work well!
Dark Raisins
Brown Sugar & Cinnamon (light dusting)

How to make it!
In a microwave safe dish, place your cored apple, put a few raisins in the cored center and a small handful around the outside of the apple.  Fill the apple core with a mixture of brown sugar and cinnamon and lightly sprinkle around the outside of the apple!  Cook the apple in the microwave for 1-3 minutes, possible longer depending on size of apple and microwave wattage (apple should be soft to the touch and the sugar will be boiling from the top of the apple)!  Allow to cool before serving to kids!
If you have visual kids, they will love watching the apple and sugar combo cook in the microwave!  It appears to almost make a sugar volcano as it cooks (plus then you know it's almost done)!

Kids starting at around age 2, with supervision, can help with sprinkling raisins and adding the brown sugar and cinnamon!

Have a great recipe or a food/cooking blog? Feel free to link up now or send me an e-mail! I am going to start featuring recipes of others every Friday...I just haven't gotten my act together yet! I'd love it if you'd grab the button, but it's not a requirement to join in!

Thanks so much for the recipe. It is such a simple dessert and I forget about it all the time. My daughter loves fruit so this sounds perfect.
