Cater To Your Sweet Tooth With These Easy Microwavable Desserts

As Filipinos, most of us are born with a hefty palate. Food is a big part of our culture, and we all know how to appreciate a good feast. However, not all of us are blessed with the skill to be masters in the kitchen. The result? We often resort to buying takeout meals or ordering from trusty fast food chains. 
Still, nothing beats homemade food, especially when it comes to desserts. The problem is that when we think of sweets, we always have this misconception that we need to slave hours in front of an oven just to make them. 

But did you know that anyone can easily whip their own batch of sweets with just a bit of ingenuity and creativity? And no, you don’t even need to have an oven to make your own comfort food. Check out the desserts below and impress your loved ones with these easy to make recipes for times when your hunger pangs call for something fast and sweet. 

Here’s a merienda both kids and adults will love: for your very own French toast, whisk milk, egg, vanilla, and cinammon together in a bowl and soak slices of bread in the mixture. Using a microwavable plate, heat the slices on high setting for one minute. Garnish it with syrup for extra flair. 
Need a quick and healthy dessert minus the elaborate prep? Do your own Sabang Saging in a minute with your microwave oven. Take two raw bananas and prick them with a fork before washing and wrapping them with paper napkins. Pop them in the microwave and cook for a minute or until the sides turn soft.
