Recipe

It doesn't matter if served warm or cold, apple strudel is always appreciated by lovers of fine desserts. Good with whipped cream.

Yield : Makes 10–12 servings
Prep Time : 30 mins, plus resting
Cooking Time : 40 mins

Ingredients

  • 2¼ lb (1kg) Golden Delicious apples
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • ½ cup chopped blanched almonds
  • 3 tbsp dark rum
  • ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Grated zest of ½ lemon
  • 4 sheets thawed frozen filo dough
  • 4 tbsp butter, melted, plus more for the baking sheet
  • 2/3 cup fresh bread crumbs
  • Confectioners sugar, for garnish

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Butter a large baking sheet. Peel, core, and cut the apples into ½ in (13mm) dice. Combine in a bowl with the raisins, sugar, almonds, rum, vanilla, and lemon zest.

2. Place a filo sheet on a work surface and brush with melted butter. Repeat with the remaining pastry sheets.

3. Sprinkle the bread crumbs over the pastry, leaving a 1in (2cm) border. Spoon the filling over the bread crumbs. Fold in the short sides to cover about 1in (2.5cm) of the filling. Starting from a long side, roll up the pastry, tucking in the filling if it escapes. Transfer to the baking sheet and brush with melted butter.

4. Bake for 30–40 minutes, brushing with the remaining melted butter after 20 minutes, until golden brown.

5. Let cool on the baking sheet. Sift liberally with confectioner's sugar. Serve warm, or at room temperature.

Notes

Preparing the apples: To ensure that your strudel does not turn soggy, choose crisp apples and avoid ones that are too ripe. Also, avoid cutting the apples too small, since they will soften while baking.
