How to make it

  • Mix 2 1/3 cups plus 1 tbsp. flour, 1 egg yolk, the egg, 3 1/2 tbsp. of melted butter and salt with enough warm water to form an elastic dough. Add a little bit of water at a time. Don't make the dough too tough or too soggy. Let the dough rest for 1 hour. Preheat the oven to 400F.
  • Soak the raisins in warm water, drain. Peel, core, and slice the apples, then toss with rum, raisins, sugar and cinnamon.
  • Roll the dough out into a thin oval on a lightly floured surface. Brush with melted butter, sprinkle with breadcrumbs and spread over the apples, leaving a 1-inch border around the edges. Roll up the edges and seal. Transfer to a greased baking sheet.
  • Mix together the remaining egg yolk and melted butter and brush the surface of the strudel. Bake for 15 minutes, then lower the temperature to 350F and bake for another 45 minutes, until golden-brown.
  • Combine confectioner's sugar and 2 tbsp. milk. Mix together to make a glaze. Brush the glaze on top of strudel. This step is optional. You can also just sprinkle the strudel with confectioner's sugar.

    Hi Julia, I saw a travel DVD from Europe and it showed a baker making strudel.... then I looked up the recipe here and here you are! Wow....

    Some recipes call for lemon zest but I think your strudel is what I will try.

    Thanks,

    Bill

    Hey Jules! This sounds awesome! I wonder if my newly planted apple tree's bounty will suffice (11 small apples, but hey, I am happy!) LOL I will make this soon, even if I have to buy the apples from our Mentone Farmer's Market, instead of using my own.

    Howdy Juels! Long time. Saw this and it brought back such happy memories for me. My grandmother used to make strudel and it was an all day event. She had to use the dinner table to roll it out. The apples came from their trees and it was a sign of fall in Pennsylvania to me. Thanks Juels.
