Jewish Recipes --> Jewish and Israeli Foods --> Apple Strudel

Apfelstrudel (Apple strudel) is a traditional Austrian pastry, and is the most widely known kind of strudel.

Apple strudel consists of an oblong strudel pastry jacket with a filling of chopped apples, sugar, cinnamon, raisins and bread crumbs. Rum is also often used to add flavour. Other ingredients include pine nuts or slivered almonds. The art of preparation is in making the pastry very thin and elastic; it is said that a single layer should be so thin you could read a newspaper through it.

The filled Apfelstrudel is baked in an oven and can be served warm, usually sprinkled with icing sugar. The traditional way to serve it is with vanilla custard, though vanilla ice cream or whipped cream are also very popular.

To bake a juicy Apfelstrudel, Elstar apples are recommended. Apples chosen should be good cooking apples, sour, crisp and aromatic.
