I feel that sometimes we forget the simple things in life. And in cooking. Often, there's a rush, a strain to always experience new things, exciting things, unusual things. But let's not forget that sometimes, simple and old-fashioned can be just as good. Or even better.
This simple baked apple makes a wonderful dessert on a cold day. Serve it with cold vanilla sauce, or ice cream.
1 apple, peeled and cored
1-2 tsp butter
1-2 tbsp almonds, chopped
2-3 tsp spice sugar (or use a mix of cinnamon and sugar if you don't have any spice sugar at hand. But you *should* make some!)
Place the apple in a small oven-proof dish. (I use ramekins from Le Creuset.) Push butter and almonds into the hole. Top with the rest of the almonds, if you like me can't fit them all inside. Sprinkle with spice sugar. Bake at 175°C for about 30 minutes, or until the apple is soft.
