Franz's Original Austrian "Apfelstrudel"

Franz showed us how to make this strudel and gave out the recipe at one of the ship's on-board activities. We all were served this with the vanilla ice cream that night as dinner. It was delicious! (I have copied the recipe as it was printed and given to us.)

THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THIS IS THE PASTRY.

Ingredients

Pastry

  • 9 ounces flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 4 ounces water
  • 1 teaspoon oil

Filling

  • 6 1/2 pounds sliced apples
  • White breadcrumbs, roasted in butter
  • Crushed nuts
  • Sugar to taste
  • Cinnamon
  • Lemon juice
  • Raisins
  • Rum to taste

Instructions

  1. Pastry: Work all ingredients into a pastry together, until it is not sticky any more. Let the pastry rest for 1 hour. In-between you have enough time to prepare the filling.
  2. Filling: Now you mix all the ingredients together. So, the pastry had enough rest now and we can start. Roll the pastry very thin (you must be able to read the recipe underneath), top it with the filling and cover it.
  3. Heat the oven to 380 to 400 degrees F and put the strudel in for approximately 45 minutes. Put powdered sugar on it and serve it warm on vanilla sauce (or with vanilla ice cream or with whipped cream).
