This is the perfect ending to any meal. It's as quick as a boxed cake mix but it's a healthier dessert choice. It's ideal in fall when it seems that everyone has a bag of fresh apples to give away! —Terri Wetzel, Roseburg, Oregon

"I would recommend this to anyone who is in a hurry, but not wanting to skimp out on flavor. Very quick and convenient if you would rather not fire up the oven which consequently heats up the whole house. Don't let the microwave fool you/make you nervous; the recipe turns out great! I didn't change a thing to the recipe. The taste reminded me of a traditional (old fashioned) apple crisp that your Grandmother would make and serve to you growing up."

"I had this at a friends house and found it great. I got the recipe from her and have sent it to others. I will make it often. It is easy to make. I think that I will add chopped walnuts some of the time. It will be nice to make when the summer temps. get to be above 100 degrees and you can just pop it into the microwave."
