Microwave Bread/Muffin

First time posting here, hi! *waves nervously*

I call this bread, but some parts of the world would call it a muffin. It's is very quick to make and IMO delicious, but pretty it ain’t, so I’m not sure how well kids would like it. Serves one person (or two if they’re not very hungry).

1 tablespoon of butter
4-5 tablespoons (0.7 dl) of dry ingredients of preference (I use one part flour, one part bran, one part wheat germ, one part flax and sesame seeds)
¼ teaspoon of baking soda
1 egg

Equipment needed:
ceramic/microwave-proof bowl
microwave oven
(rack for drying)

Melt the butter in a ceramic/microwave-proof bowl. Add all the other ingredients and mix well with a fork. Heat in the microwave for 60 to 70 seconds. Remove from bowl (just upend) and let dry for 5 to 10 minutes. Halve and eat like a breakfast muffin or a roll.

There’s a lot of room for variations. I originally found this recipe at a low-carb forum, where they used flax seed meal, soy flour, almond flour, and protein powder instead of all the carbs I use.

Apple Crumble

It is my first time posting here, but I thought I would offer a apple crumble recipe that I used to make in high school (with assistance, due to the fact I am half blind) and now make every christmas for my family.



3-4 Bramley Apples (cored, peeled and sliced)
5-6 plain digestive biscuits or chocolate (plain works best)
brown or white sugar
maple syrup (optional)

Equipment Needed

A peeling knife
A apple corer
A rolling pin
A plastic bag
A bowl or square tin suitable for the oven


1) peel and slice the apples, and put into a bowl or tin.

2) Put the 5 or 6 digestive biscuits into a plastic bag, and hit them with a rolling pin till it makes them into crumbs.

3) Sprinkle the sugar and biscuits over the apples. Add maple syrup if you choose too (only a few drops).

4) cook for 30 mins in a gas mark four oven.
