Apple Strudel


Making Apple Strudel from scratch can be a laborious task because it's difficult to make the Filo pastry and obviously I don't know how.  However, making the apple strudel with store bought Filo pastry is quite easy to master.  This flaky pastry with a mildly sweet apple and raisin filling can be served in many ways.  You can simply dust it with icing sugar like what I did, or  serve it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream,  whipped cream or custard.  But if you do not have these at hand, you can always fall back on the good old cup of hot coffee or tea. :D  







Recipe for Apple Strudel

Ingredients
  • 5 Granny Smith apples, peeled, cored and sliced thinly
  • 12 sheets Filo Pastry, about 1 pound.   (4 sheets for 1 roll of Apple Strudel)
  • 1/2 cup melted butter/vegetable oil (I used canola oil)
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 egg lightly beaten
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
Method
  1. Soak the sliced apples in some salt water to prevent browning,  Drain.
  2. Mix the sugar and cinnamon with the sliced apples,   Set aside.
  3. On a work top, place 1 sheet of Filo pastry, brush  with oil, then repeat this process up to the fourth sheet.  Brush with oil.   (Keep remaining Filo sheets covered with parchment paper and damp cloth to prevent them from drying up).
  4. Spoon apple mixture, leaving 2 inch border along each edge.  Roll up once, tuck in the sides and roll up.  Place the rolls, seams side down onto a parchment lined baking tray.
  5. Bake in a preheated oven @ 180 deg.C, on the lower rack for 25 to 30 mins. 
  6. Cut up and dust with icing sugar before serving.  Alternatively serve with whipped cream, custard or vanilla ice cream.

  One of my family's favourite to have for breakfast or tea is the evergreen Chiffon Cake, be it in whatever flavour.   I have posted different flavours of chiffon cakes on my blog and this time I used matcha powder, and chocolate powder mixed with matcha powder not only for flavour but to create some swirl patterns.  As always chiffon cakes are light, airy, soft and most delectable.
