Easy apple Strudel? Really? YES! Here's an easy recipe that really, really is easy. Slightly cake-like, its flavor really shines through. It's a make-your-hubby-happy kind of cake. This recipe was given to me (and made for me) by my dear friend, Melania Orasch. It is Austrian in origin, and is slightly different the 'flaky-type' strudels, but is so wonderfully yummy!

Melania says she fills hers with apples, cheese, walnuts, or dried fruits, (the regular strudel fillings). The recipe below is the apple one. THIS IS WUNDERBAR!

Kaffeeklatsch Trivia with a cup of coffee and steam rising

  • Strudel, similar to baklava, came to Austria through Turkish and Hungarian influences
  • The German word, "Strudel"  means "whirlpool" or "eddy" and describes the flaky layers of pastry surrounding the filling
  • The traditional strudel dough is rolled and pulled until it is so thin that a newspaper can be read through it
  • The most popular type is the apple strudel, but there are many other fillings, including sweet and savoury ones. Spinach, sauerkraut, and cabbage strudels are common as are meat ones

Melania's Easy Apple Strudel Recipe ❤️

Ingredients:

  • ½ lb lard
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs beaten
  • ¾ cup ginger ale
  • 4 apples, peeled and diced
  • small handful of raisins
  • 2 Tbsp granulated sugar
  • cinnamon

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 350° F.
  • Cut the lard into the flour to which the salt has been added. 
  • Add beaten eggs and ginger ale.
  • Gather together and knead slightly.
  • Make into a ball. Cut in half.
  • Roll out one half as thinly as possible.
  • Spread half the apples in a row lengthwise on the dough, keeping about 2 inches from the long edge and 1 inch from the ends. Sprinkle half the raisins over, 1 Tbsp sugar, and dust with cinnamon. Fold over the 1-inch edges and then the 2-inch edge and roll as for a strudel. 
  • Place, seam side down on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Repeat with the remaining dough.
  • Bake at 350° F for approximately 30 minutes.
  • Let cool before sprinkling with powdered sugar and serving.
  • Makes 2 strudels

Hints:

  • Make just one strudel now and keep the remaining dough for use another day. Wrap securely. Either refrigerate for a day or two. Or, freeze for longer term storage. 

"Strudel" is an old German word that means "whirlpool" and that is pictured in the rolled up structure of the cake. Usually a 'strudel' dough is made that is very elastic and can be stretched extremely thinly. Or a puff pastry or phyllo is used. 

Coffee and apple strudel served elegantly on a newly chalk painted living room table, decorated with tablescape.

So many Strudels ...

Melania's strudel is different. The texture is more cake-like, but the method of rolling out thinly, covering with the filling, and rolling it up (think whirlpool) is very similar.

Popular strudels in Germany include the apple strudel (of course), a Topfenstrudel filled with sweet quark cheese, sour cherry, sweet cherry, nut, apricot, poppy seed, and raisin strudels.
