This vegan recipe was inspired by the fried apple sandwich my Dutch grandmother used to make for me. She would spread lard on a slice of bread, layer the fried apple slices and add white sugar and sometimes cinnamon, and that was eaten with fork and knife. I think she called it an appel-broodje.
I still like it a lot, but instead of lard I use vegan butter, and the white sugar was replaced with coconut sugar. I added cardamom and nutmeg to the cinnamon. Vanilla and cloves are also nice with it.
I usually prepare a little more of the spice mixture, so I always have some on hand for the next fried apple sandwich.
FRIED APPLE SANDWICH

- 2 cardamom cloves
- 1 teaspoon coconut sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, grated

- First, gather all your ingredients and prepare them in the right amounts. That makes it so much easier and more fun and you're less likely to forget anything.
