x rated apple strudel

July 16, 2011


A good friend and colleague of mine was returning to Germany for a while and being the office “Baroness  of baking” I offered to make her a farewell morning tea.

I offered to make an Apple Strudel – or as she calls it “Apfelstrudel”.

I also offered to put her favourite, X rated, german phrase on top of it….

If you speak German you’ll be able to translate the phrase “Arshpiraten ” and if your mind is as dirty as ours, you’ll get a giggle.

500g       Puff pastry

1kg         Apples, peeled and pitted

50g         Butter

100g       Refined sugar

60g         Raisins

3 tsp      Vanilla sugar

2 tsp      Rum (OR WAY MORE, I won’t judge you!)

Fresh lemon juice


1 egg

Icing sugar (for decoration)

Cut apples in small slices and mix them with the sugar, vanilla sugar, cinnamon, rum and raisins

Melt the butter and add to the apple/sugar mix

Heat the apple/sugar/butter mix and let it stew until apples are slightly cooked (should not soft, but not to the core)

Lay the puff pastry out  in about 40 cm x 24 cm. Place the apple mix on one side of the pastry, brush some egg white on the seam of the pastry. Fold the other half over the apples and press the seams to make them stick (pretty much like packing a long apple package).

Brush some egg yolk on top of the Strudel (so it’ll be nice and brown when baked..).

Bake at 220 ° C (pre-heated) for about 25 minutes.

Decorate with icing sugar  and serve with Ice cream bought on the company credit card because as our CEO said “What’s your company credit card for, if not for buying ice cream on it?” -@trentmankelow
