It was a close call, apple strudel or black forest gateaux? I chose the path of least resistance. Apfel Strudel is easier and quicker to make (provided you are not crazy enough to make your own filo pastry). It also has apple and raisins which all toddlers love don’t they?

My youngest loved making this, she painted each layer of the filo pastry with the precision of an artist. The first layer was squirrels with long tails and the last was her face.

There are many different versions of the recipe, the one I used is a mixture of a few, but closest to this one.

Steps

1
Done

Preheat the oven to 170C. Slice the apples into a bowl. Add the breadcrumbs, 4 tbsp. melted butter, the sugar, cinnamon, raisins and the grated lemon rind and stir together.

2
Done

On a damp towel, lay two sheets of filo pastry and brush with melted butter. Place one to two sheets on top and brush again. Carry on until there a 4-5 layers.

3
Done

On the top buttered sheet, put the apple mixture down the centre leaving 1 inch on each side.

4
Done

Fold in the short sides and then carefully roll the pastry to resemble a log.

5
Done

Put the strudel on a greased baking sheet seam side down. Brush the top with the remaining butter, cut 1/4 inch deep slashes diagonally across the top.

6
Done

Bake in the oven until lightly browned and crisp on top, 35-40 minutes. It can be served either warm or cooled.
