Sieve the flour into a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients for the strudel dough except for the butter. Mix for 8-10 minutes with the kneading hooks of the hand mixer to a smooth, elastic dough. Form the dough into a ball and coat with butter. Cut a cross with a sharp knife and wrap the dough in cling film and let it rest at room temperature for 2 hours. Roll out the dough on a floured, large cloth, then put the back of your hand under the pond and pull out the dough thinly.
You can also use puff pastry or ready-made strudel pastry.
Wash and peel the apples, cut them into quarters and cut out the core. Cut apple pieces into fine slices. Place apple slices in a bowl and mix with almond flakes, breadcrumbs and sugar.
Fill Strudel Dough
Spread the strudel dough on a cloth, spread with liquid butter and sprinkle with sugar. Apply the filling according to taste (see article on variants and doughs), leaving out the edges of the dough generously. Roll up the strudel with the help of the cloth and place it on the baking sheet with baking paper with the seam facing downwards. Spread the strudel generously with liquid butter.
With puff pastry, an additional roughening of the dough at the seam would be necessary. Furthermore, the puff pastry should be squeezed well with the fingers.
Place the strudel in the preheated oven, strudel dough 210°C, puff pastry 220°C. Reduce the oven temperature for the strudel dough variant directly to 190-200°C for the puff pastry, maintain the high temperature for half the baking time, then, depending on the browning of the strudel, reduce to 180°C if necessary.
Depending on the thickness of the strudel, the baking time of the strudel is 18 minutes for strudels with a diameter of approx. 5 – 7 cm and up to 40 minutes for strudels with a diameter of 8 – 12 cm.
Remove the baked strudel from the oven and allow to cool lukewarm for some time. Carefully portion and arrange the strudel with an electric knife or a bread knife.
