Recipe for 10 portions
strudel or puff pastry (available in your supermarket freezer)
1.5 kg apples (peeled, seeded, thinly sliced)
flour, butter, cinnamon, raisins, sugar
Spread the pastry on a flour-dusted tablecloth and sprinkle 2/3 of its area with butter-fried breadcrumbs. Spread the thinly sliced apples, mixed with the sugar, cinnamon and raisins (to taste), over 2/3 of the dough.
Drip melted butter onto the uncovered third of the dough, cut away the dough’s thick edges, and roll the strudel shut towards the uncovered side.
Brush melted butter onto the entire strudel and bake rapidly in a hot oven, frequently brushing on more butter, until it is crispy (approx. 35 min.). Sprinkle on powdered sugar before serving.
Tip: Your strudel will stay crispy if you refrain from storing it in the refrigerator.
