Nothing is as marvellous as a fresh apple strudel ...

Apple Strudel Recipe

Pelled Apple

fresh tart cooking apples (preferably red), peeled, cored and cut into ¼ inch-thick slices (use apples that hold their shape during baking)

Ingredients of filling:

Ingredients of pastry:


Fill the strudel pastry with apple

Put the apple on the pastry, with a 2.5cm/1-in border all around.

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. To make the filling: Peel, and thinly slice the apples and immediately toss them with the other filling ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Dredge a tea towel with flour and place one sheet of filo on it with the long side facing you. Brush the filo with melted butter. Place another sheet of filo on top of the first and brush with more melted butter. Continue in this way until there are twelve sheets of filo on top of each other with butter in between.
  4. Sprinkle the top sheet of buttered filo with the filling, leaving a wide border all around the edges. Fold in these edges to seal in the filling, then brush them with melted butter. Using the tea towel to help you, roll up the filo away from you.
  5. Carefully lift the roll, seam side down, onto a butter baking sheet and tuck in the ends so the filling does not ooze out during baking.
  6. Brush all over with melted butter and bake for 30 minutes or until crisp and golden.
  7. Serve warm, dusted with powdered sugar.

Toaster Strudel Breakfast Pastries

Toaster Strudel

The Apple, and Apple Cream Danish are in the most preferred flavors of Toaster Strudel

The company Pillsbury markets a version of strudel called Toaster Strudels (type of ready-made, frozen pastry) in 1985. These are somewhat similar to Pop Tarts.

They are prepared by heating them in the toaster and then spreading the included icing packet on top of the pastry. The product has found considerable success since its debut and is available in most grocery stores in the USA.

The pastries should be assembled and baked in advance, then frozen so that they can be reheated on-demand, as snacks or breakfast treats. The packaged toaster strudels come with some kind of “sweet cream” glaze, which tastes a bit like cream cheese.
