Apple Strudel Recipe

Apple Strudel Recipe

Ingredients : Serves 4

5 crisp eating (dessert) apples, peeled, cored and chopped
100 g/4 oz/1 cup blanched almonds, toasted and chopped
100 g/4 oz raisins
15 ml/1 tbsp ground cinnamon
A pinch of salt
A pinch of grated nutmeg
225 g/8 oz/1 cup caster (superfine) sugar
5 ml/1 tsp vanilla essence (extract)
6 filo pastry (paste) sheets
100 g/4 oz butter or margarine, melted
15 ml/1 tbsp icing (confectioners') sugar

Method :

Stir together the apples, almonds, raisins, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, sugar and vanilla essence. Lay a sheet of filo pastry on a clean tea towel (dish cloth) and brush with melted butter or margarine. Lay a second sheet beside it, overlapping the edges and brush with butter. Lay two more sheets on top in the opposite direction and brush with butter. Lay the final two sheets on top, in the opposite direction, and brush with butter. Fold the edges in 1 cm/0.5 in. Spread the fruit mixture evenly over the pastry, right up to the folded edges. Roll up carefully from the narrow end, using the towel to help. Roll on to a greased and lined baking (cookie) sheet with the join underneath and tuck in the ends. Brush with the remaining butter or margarine and bake in a preheated oven at 180C/350F/gas mark 4 for 30 minutes until crisp and golden. Lift carefully from the paper on to a wire rack to cool and serve sprinkled with the icing sugar.
