Apple Strudel is one of Austria’s most famous desserts. We decided to share the recipe with you so you can try your hands on baking and enjoy a little bit of Austria in your kitchen too.
A pinch of salt
Knead all the ingredients in a dough mixer or by hand into a soft, well-worked dough. Cut into halves, keep in a bowl, brush with some oil to keep it moist, cover with a slightly wet cloth and keep aside.
That’s what you need for the filling
Juice of 2 lemons
Approx.. 100g sugar (depending on how sour your apples are)
1,75kg peeled and thinly sliced apples
100g chopped walnuts
Cinnamon to taste
200g butter roasted breadcrumbs
unsalted butter for brushing on the dough
Icing sugar for garnishing
Mix apples, sugar, raisins, walnuts, and cinnamon make sure you do not break the apple slices.
How to make the Strudel
Use flour on your working surface. Roll half the dough to a about 10cm broad and 20cm long. Then pull and stretch the dough by hand. The dough needs to be so thin that you can read a newspaper through it.
Cut off the slightly thicker edges of the dough. Brush the dough with butter, then sprinkle half of the roasted breadcrumbs and half of the apple filling across the length of the dough (about 1/3 of the width). Wrap on the sides and roll the dough to a Strudel.
Repeat with the other half of the ingredients.
Put the strudel on a baking tin, brush some more butter on top and bake at 180◦C for 60 minutes.
For serving cut the strudel in portions and sprinkle with icing sugar. Enjoy!
