➡️ What is strudel? ❓

Did You Know That?

“A strudel is a type of layered pastry with a filling that is usually sweet, but savory fillings are also common. It became popular in the 18th century throughout the Habsburg Empire. Strudel is part of Austrian cuisine but is also common in other Central European cuisines. In Italy, it is recognized as a traditional agri-food product (PAT) of South Tyrol.[1]
The oldest strudel recipes (a Millirahmstrudel and a turnip strudel) are from 1696, in a handwritten cookbook at the Wienbibliothek im Rathaus (formerly Wiener Stadtbibliothek).[2] The pastry descends from similar Near Eastern pastries (see baklava and Turkish cuisine).[3]

➡️ Baking tips for the German apple strudel recipe 🔎

Almost everyone heard about strudel because it’s one of the most famous recipes for classic homemade cakes that are highly appreciated even today.

For those who don’t know, the strudel is a pie with several dough sheets and various fillings, usually sweet. This traditional cake has Austrian origins and is therefore called Wiener strudel.

Because it’s extremely delicious, the strudel has become famous outside the borders of the country of origin and today it’s prepared in many other countries such as Germany and those that were part of the former Habsburg Empire.

Furthermore, the strudel is now widely known worldwide and especially in the US and Canada, countries with large numbers of immigrants from the Old Continent.

Among the many Wiener strudel types, the most popular are apple strudel, pumpkin strudel, cherry strudel, and sweet cow cheese strudel. However, other types of strudel are more and more appreciated nowadays, such as apricot strudel, plum strudel, and pear strudel.

Some fruit strudel recipes include raisins, but using this ingredient is optional. However, I like more strudel with raisins, so I recommend using them when baking this homemade cake recipe.

The pastry sheets can be bought from the store. They can be prepared at home as well, but the process is quite complicated and takes a lot of time.

Apart from that, there is practically no quality difference between the commercial sheets and those made at home, and therefore it’s not worth the effort to prepare them.

This type of German apple strudel recipe can be made with both phyllo dough and puff pastry dough. On this page, I share the German apple strudel recipe with phyllo dough, which is also known as filo dough.

The German apple strudel recipe is identical to the Austrian version.

Whatever you call it, this apple strudel is particularly tasty. Therefore, I recommend you prepare it as soon as possible!
