Apple Strudel

If you have a tree dropping lots of apples, or you bought a lot of apples and they're getting too ripe, it's time to turn these leftovers into apple strudel!

Here's all you need:
10 Apples
1/2 cup Brown Sugar
2 tablespoons Cinnamon
1 tsp Nutmeg
1 tsp Salt
2 tablespoons Butter
Dough (8 Phyllo sheets or any dough from the freezer section of your store)

  • Dice the apples
  • Saute them in a sauce pan in butter
  • Add brown sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, salt
  • After 10 minutes, it will caramelize
  • Pour the mixture into the phyllo sheets. Add some more cinnamon (with sugar if you have it) to the phyllo doll
  • Roll the sheets up into a roll
  • Put on a baking sheet
  • Bake for 20 minutes at 370 degrees

Take out of the oven, cool, drizzle with a little caramel if you have it, and you are ready for a warm winter treat!

Chef Chong, here in Hong Kong, our climate is not suitable for having apples trees.

Can I replace the apples with peaches? I should think so..but are there anything else I need to change on the main recipe?

Hi Armand. You can use Peach but need to cook it up and reduce the moisture. You need more peaches than apples, cos the peaches dont have enough body to make the strudel looks puffy. When you use peaches, remember to boil it in the hot water for few seconds and then peel it before cooking with sugar and the other ingredients. Enjoy and I know everyone can cook.

Chef Chong
Keep cooking
