How to make the Strudel

fill-and-roll

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.

brush-and-bake

Put the strudel on a baking tin, brush some more butter on top and bake at 180C for 60 minutes.
