pple strudel is a traditional Viennese pastry, popular in Austria and all the other countries of former Austro-Hungarian Monarchy. The word strudel means “swirl” in German because it is made so that phyllo dough is rolled around the filling. When cut in slices, the cut resembles the swirl. It is served warm, sprinkled with powdered sugar and topped with whipped cream, vanilla custard or vanilla ice cream. I like it fresh, crispy and warm, with a scoop of homemade vanilla ice cream… Yummy! This is easy and quick recipe with store bought phyllo. However, if you have time, check my post about making phyllo dough from scratch, and wrap your strudel in your own homemade yufka!

- Phyllo dough 4-5 sheets
- Sour apples 500g (1.1lbs)
- Granulated sugar 150g (5.3oz)
- Juice of half a lemon
- Cinnamon, ground 2g (1⁄8Tsp)
- Butter melted 100g (3.5oz)
- Breadcrumbs 30g (1oz)
- Peel and core the apples. Cut them into slices and add juice of half a lemon, cinnamon and sugar. Mix them well, and set them aside to release the juices.
- Put one phyllo sheet on a piece of parchment paper and brush it with butter. Sprinkle some breadcrumbs on the top.
- Put another phyllo sheet on top of the first one, brush it with butter, and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Continue until you get 4-5 sheets of phyllo layered one on top of each other. If you have thinner phyllo, put 5 sheets, and if your phyllo is a bit thicker, put 4 sheets.
- Drain your apples, and arrange them in a 4cm (1.5″) wide strip along one side of the dough. There should be a 3cm (1.2″) margin between the edge of the dough and filling.
- Roll the phyllo sheets tightly around the apple filling.
- Place the strudel joint side down on paper lined pan, brush it with butter and bake it at 190°C (374°F) for about 30 minutes, until golden brown and crunchy.
- Remove the strudel from the oven, dust it with powdered sugar, and cut it into pieces.
