Winter has always been, for me, the season for tea. Tea combined with apple pie and since apple pie has been already published, it’s time for apple strudel.
Strudel is a pastry of filled dough. The most common version consists of apples, raisins and walnut. It has its own specific dough, but can be replaced with filo or puff pastry.
Its origin comes from the Byzantine Empire, but it was the Austro-Hungarian Empire that made it well-known worldwide, hence the many variations on the recipe. The oldest recipe is a manuscript kept in Vienna’s library.
Strudel means swirl and probably it refers to the love swirl, as the legend says that the strudel dough must so thin so you can read a love letter through it. The combination of flavors sweet, sour and bitter drives you to a swirl of a tasteful love.
Ingredients for our recipe
Note 1: Alternatively you can use 4 filo pastry, lightly buttered or puff pastry.
Note 2: Before you spreading the apples and after mixing with the cinnamon mix, taste to check if you want more sugar. If so add 1 teaspoon, mix and try again.
Note 3: Instead of bread you can add crushed walnut.
Good luck and bon appetit!

Ο Περικλής Πιτένης όταν ήταν μικρός ήθελε να γίνει Chef (ούτε καν μάγειρας). Πρώτο αλκοολούχο ποτό που έβαλε στο στόμα του ήταν η μπύρα, όταν ήταν ακόμα στην αγκαλιά της μάνας του. Η συνέχεια είναι περιττή… Μόνο που προτιμάει μπύρες τύπου Weiss και Lambic. Είναι εμπνευστής της σελίδας “Ο Γλυκός Αιώνας του Περικλή”
