Homemade  Apple Strudel

Jen Sobjack

This homemade baked apple strudel recipe has a flaky, sweet crust wrapped around tender apples, raisins and brown sugar. It’s a delicious special occasion brunch or breakfast recipe.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the egg, water, and oil. Whisk in the flour and salt until almost fully combined. Knead dough until it comes together in a cohesive ball.


Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and let sit for 45 minutes.


On a lightly floured sheet of parchment paper, roll the dough into an 11x17 rectangle. Using a pairing knife, score the pastry into 3 columns taking care not to cut all the way through. Using a sharp knife or pastry wheel, cut the side columns into equal strips. 


Fill the center column with the filling. Fold the pastry over the top and bottom to seal in the filling. Wrap the filling by pulling alternate strands of the cut sides over to the other side the press to seal the dough. Make sure to not leave any large gaps across the top.


Bake for 25-30 minutes, until the top is golden brown.
