How to make Apple strudel...step-by-step video

Apple strudel recipe


  • 600g cooking apples chopped
  • 45g raisins
  • 80g caster sugar
  • ¾tsp ground cinnamon
  • ½ lemon, zested and juiced
  • 6 filo pastry
  • 100g unsalted butter, melted
  • 1tbsp icing sugar
  • whipped cream, to serve


  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 190C/170C fan/gas 5. Mix together the apples, raisins, sugar, cinnamon and lemon zest and juice in a bowl with a small pinch of salt.

  • STEP 2

    Lay a clean tea towel on your worksurface and then lay a sheet of filo on top and brush really well with melted butter. Put another sheet directly on top of this and brush again. Repeat with the remaining sheets and butter.

  • STEP 3

    With the longest side of the filo facing you, spoon on the apple filling in a thick log, leaving a 4cm border nearest you, and also at the sides. Fold in the sides, then use the towel to help you roll the whole thing up into a fat log. Brush with a little more melted butter and put into the oven for 30-35 mins or until golden and crisp.

  • STEP 4

    Leave to cool until just warm, then dust with icing sugar and serve with some lightly whipped cream.
