Traditional  Apple Strudel Recipe

How could you forget the smell of baked apples coming from your Oma’s kitchen and that unforgettable Apfelstrudel? 

Apple Strudel is a classic dessert throughout Europe and is called Apfelstrudel in Germany. 

A strudel is a type of sweet or savory layered pastry with a filling inside. The name Strudel comes from the German word for "whirlpool" because the rolled version, the pastry looks like the inside of a whirlpool 

We hope you enjoy making your own Strudel and the memories that will come with it. 



1 Thawed Puff Pastry (or you can make your own) 

 ¼ cup Toasted Breadcrumbs 

¼ cup Melted Butter 

Tart Apples 



Raisins and Nuts 


Strudel Filling 

3 or 4 Apples peeled & diced 

½ cup Light Brown Sugar 

1 Tablespoon Cinnamon 

¼ Tablespoon Nutmeg 

¼ cup Raisins (optional) 

¼ cup Nuts (optional) 



Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C.) 

Mix strudel filling ingredients and set aside. 

Place thawed puff pastry on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. 

Lightly roll out the pastry to about 10” x 12”.  

Sprinkle toasted breadcrumbs over half of the pastry along the 12” side.  

Place strudel filling on top of breadcrumbs. 

Fold the pastry lengthwise over the filling.  

Lightly wet your fingers and press the edges of pastry together to seal all the way around.  

Brush the top of the pastry with melted butter.  

Cut some slits in the top for the steam to escape. 

Bake for 35 to 45 minutes, or until golden brown.  

Serve warm! 

Enjoy with vanilla ice cream or heavy cream.
