Ever heard of a mug cake? This recipe is similar to that—simply combine a few ingredients in a mug, and zap it for only a minute or two in the microwave to create a quick dessert for one. A little bit of cornstarch gives the cooked strawberries a thick, glossy texture, and store-bought granola makes an effortless crunchy topping. Keep a close eye on the crisp as it cooks in the microwave; the cooking happens lightning fast, and the fruit can bubble over if you’re not careful.

strawberries

1 cup(s), chopped

sugar

1 tsp
