Simple baked apple wedges, a dish that even someone who, after more than a year of devoted practice, has not managed to do justice to Hungry Jack's can do.

2 green apples

Make a paste of:

1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
a pinch of ginger powder
1 Tablespoon of unsalted butter
2 Tablespoons of maple syrup

Slice the 2 apples into 8 pieces each. Take out the core and stem.  Divide the cinnamon-maple syrup paste among the 16 slices of apples.  The paste goes onto the top part of the apples where the seeds/core used to be. Put them into a shallow baking dish, (I used a quiche dish) and bake for 20-25 minutes in 400 degrees.

That’s it.  A lot simpler and definitely more flavorful than the pancakes I have been living on the past year or so.

I paired this with a fruity 2007 Australian Merlot.
