Apfelstrudel is a traditional Austrian dessert consisting of a thin and flaky pastry dough that is rolled around a filling of sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. The pastry is typically made with a mixture of flour, water, and butter that is stretched out into a very thin sheet, then layered with a melted butter and bread crumb mixture to add texture and flavor.
The filling is usually made by combining thinly sliced apples with sugar, cinnamon, and raisins. Some variations may also include chopped nuts or rum-soaked currants. The filling is then spread over the pastry sheet, which is rolled up and baked until golden brown.
Apfelstrudel is often served warm, dusted with powdered sugar and accompanied by vanilla ice cream, whipped cream, or a dollop of sour cream. It is a popular dessert throughout Austria and other parts of Europe, and is also enjoyed in many other parts of the world.
