Apple strudel


  1. 375g ready-rolled puff pastry
  2. Flour for dusting
  3. 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  4. 8 tbsp raspberry conserve
  5. 4 tbsp ground almonds
  6. 4 medium bramley apples
  7. 170g raisins or sultanas
  8. ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  9. 1 tbsp milk
  10. Icing sugar for dusting


  1. 1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/fan160°C/gas 4. Cut the sheet of pastry in half widthways. ?On a lightly floured surface, roll one half out into a 30cm x 40cm rectangle – the pastry will get very thin.
  2. 2. Lightly brush the pastry with half the oil, leaving a 2.5cm border. Using a palette knife, spread 4 tbsp of the conserve within the border and sprinkle 2 tbsp of the ground almonds over the top.
  3. 3. Peel and grate the apples into a colander, then squeeze out as much juice as you can. Spread half over the pastry, making sure the apple is evenly spread, followed by half the raisins or sultanas and a sprinkling of cinnamon.
  4. 4. Carefully roll from the long edge of the pastry to form a log. Turn so the seal is underneath, then tuck the ends under and brush all over with milk. Transfer to a lined baking sheet, then repeat with the remaining pastry and ingredients.
  5. 5. Bake in the oven for 30-35 minutes until golden and puffed up. Leave to cool on a wire rack. When cold, sprinkle with some icing sugar, then cut into slices. Eat and enjoy.
