This recipe was found on Søndag

Serves 4

5 aromatic apples (such as Transperence Blanc, Belle de Boskoop, Cox Orange, Ingrid Marie)
4 tbsp sugar
1/2 vanilla pod
Pinch of salt
Sugar-Toasted Rye Bread
2-3 thick slices of Danish rye bread (preferably old-fashioned dark rye bread without seeds)

Wash, peel, and core the apples. Cut them into wedges. Place the wedges in a pot with 3-4 tsp water. Cover and bring to a boil very slowly. Turn off the heat and let the apples sit for 7 minutes. Turn the heat on again and carefully cook them until they’re about ready to explode. Add sugar, salt, grains from the vanilla pod, and the vanilla pod itself. Bring to a boil and add more sugar if needed. Cook through and pour into a bowl. Remove the vanilla pod.

Remove crusts from the bread and cut the bread into sticks. Toast them lightly (1/2-1 minute) on both sides in a dry nonstick pan. Add butter and let the bread fry for about 30 seconds on medium heat. Sprinkle sugar and cinnamon atop, turn, and let fry for a little while longer, until the sugar side is caramelised.
