To inform people who don’t know what is a strudel, I have to say that it’s a layered pastry cake with some filling, which is usually sweet.
It seems that strudel was invented by Austrian bakers during the Habsburg Empire. However, strudel recipes are very popular in many Eastern European countries that were included in the empire.
Because it’s very tasty, this Hungarian strudel is one of the most popular homemade cake recipes in the country. Cherry or sour cherry strudel recipe is typical for Hungary, but you’ll find it also in other countries where live Hungarian such as Romania or Slovakia.
The cheery or sour cherry strudel recipe is very tasty. As a result, I make it any time I have fresh cherries. However, you can make this Hungarian cherry strudel recipe with canned cherries as well.
Regarding pastry used for Hungarian strudel, you can prepare it at home or buy it from the store. Because making homemade pastry is a very time-consuming process, almost everybody chooses to use the commercial version. However, there is no quality difference, so there isn’t worth the effort to make pastry at home.
If you use sour cherries instead of sweet cherries, you need to add extra 2 tablespoons of sugar and 1 tablespoon of semolina to this Hungarian strudel recipe.
