Strudel is a traditional Austrian dish, a roll of sheet dough with various fillings. The shape gives it its name: in German the word “strudel” means whirligig or whirlpool. Here’s a quick and easy recipe for a classic strudel – filling of apples and raisins wrapped in ready-made thin pita bread.
- Thin pita bread 1 sheet
- Vegetable oil 1 tbsp.
- Powdered sugar 70g
- Apples 5 units.
- Raisins 150g
- Nuts 200g
- Juice of half lemon
- Sugar 4 tbsp.
- Cinnamon 0,5 tsp.
- Peel the apples, cut into slices, put into a saucepan, add the juice of half a lemon, sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, cook on low heat for 10 minutes.
- Raisins are washed and dried. When the apples have cooled, add the raisins, chopped nuts and cinnamon.
- Grease pita bread with vegetable oil and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Spread the filling on the surface, stepping away from the edge of the pita. Roll pita and grease it with vegetable oil.
- Place on a dry baking tray, bake at 180 °C until pita browns. Cool, cut into portions and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
