Apple Strudel

Rolling the strudel

Now this one was exciting for me. I love Apple strudel. I have thinking about it for a while already, so May's challenge was like Linda and Courtney reading my mind. The best strudel I ever had, goes all the way back to my childhood. She was a neighbour of ours and the strudel she made was divine. I remember my mother asking the recipe more than once, and we did it, and we did it, but it never came out the same. Maybe her oven had a little twist. I dont know.
The May Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Linda of make life sweeter! and Courtney of Coco Cooks. They chose Apple Strudel from the recipe book Kaffeehaus: Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Cafés of Vienna, Budapest and Prague by Rick Rodgers.
This strudel was quite close to the my childhood one, but still missing something. I think I could have added more sugar. In my apple strudel I kept the apples, but left out raisins and replaced breadcrumbs, with ground almonds.

Great job, I agree, the filling needed more sugar!
