This baked apple is very easy to make! If you don’t have enough time, I recommend to use a microwave.
Dig out 1/3 on the apple with a small knife. Put 1 tsp raisin, 1 tbsp granulated sugar,pinch of cinnamon powder and 10g unsalted butter in an apple in order.
Put the apple on a heat- resistant dish and cover it with plastic film. Heat it with microwave for 5 minutes. Be careful not to be burn!
