Microwaved Apple Peach Quinoa Crumble

20140814-141751-51471175.jpg

I use my microwave to reheat beverages only. Many of my friends no longer use it for various reasons.
However I had some apple and peaches to use up and I’m a little tired of fruit salad and muffins.
So I decided a crumble but I didn’t have the time to bake it. In the end this only took me 15 minutes!

Ingredients
4 Apples not peeled, chopped
3 Peaches not peeled, chopped
3/4 Oats
3/4 Quinoa Flakes
4 TB Flour
3/4 Brown Sugar
3/4 melted butter

Directions
Spray a 9×9 glass bakeware and place apples and peaches in
In a bowl combine all dry ingredients
Melt butter and add to dry ingredients and mix until crumbly
Spread over fruit and pat gently
Microwave on high for 6-8 minutes or until fruit is tender

For my Nana-she always had warm fadgies waiting for us after school

Wet Ingredients:
1 c hotish tap water (not boiling)
1 tsp white sugar
1 tbsp yeast

½ c scalded milk (not boiling hot)
¼ c white sugar
¼ c melted lard or vegetable oil

Dry ingredients:
4¼ c white flour
1 Tsp Salt.

Wet ingredients: Using a 2 cup measure, add sugar to hotish water and stir and then add the yeast but do not stir until risen ( about 15 to 20 minutes) and then thoroughly stir until dissolved. Then add milk, extra sugar and melted lard (or oil) and stir. I scald milk and melt lard in microwave at the same time.

Dry ingredients: Put the flour and salt into then Cuisinart, add the Wet Ingredients a little at a time, cover and lock and turn machine on (knead) and when the dough is soft and very elastic, but not sticky. If it is sticky add more flour ¼ cup at a time and knead some more. Form into a ball of dough.

Lightly grease a bowl, place ball of dough in the bowl, cover with a clean tea towel and leave in a warm place to rise, the dough needs to at least double in size, this should take 40 to 50 minutes.

Remove the dough from the bowl and on a floured surface roll the dough out as pastry to 1 inch depth and cut into squares/triangles or take small amounts and make into balls. Place onto ungreased (or very, very little greased) baking trays and again cover with clean tea towels, place in a warm area and leave to rise for 30 to 40 minutes, the bread should again double in size.

Preheat oven bake 425 degrees and bake for approx 10 to 14 minutes and then place on a wire tray to cool.

For pizza crust:
1.5c luke warm water
1 tsp white sugar
1 tbsp yeast

4 c flour
1 tsp salt
3 tbsp veg oil
