Autumn is rich, generous and hospitable. And how in this time of year, the holidays! Fairs, folk festivals, weddings... I tell you a secret that I have and professional events in the fall - as many as four. No wonder they say that in autumn and Sparrow feast. And what's a celebration without cakes? So, open the calendar, find an occasion and bake... like strudel! Thin and fragile crust, delicious aroma of apples, caramel, cinnamon, vanilla and yeast dough. Let's enjoy a delicious warm dessert, in the preparation of which there is nothing complicated! Surprised!? It's all about the secret autumn ingredients!
Let's start with the first secret ingredients.
Apples and sugar for the filling. Their number should be taken to your liking. The recipe says what I like. Sugar is better to take brown, large or small - all the same. Here the main thing - flavor.
If the apples have a soft skin, then we will not remove it, if the skin is rough, then, of course, remove it from the apples. I have the apples were fresh from the fall garden, with good skin.
Prepared apples cut into thin slices, mix in a bowl with raisins, nuts, cinnamon, vanilla and sugar.
The following secret ingredients-for the test.
The oil should be at room temperature. Therefore, it will get out of the refrigerator in advance. Please don't heat it in a microwave, for example. The dough will be different.
Beer shouldn't be cold either. I took dark. It is soft and elegant, with rich light aromas of caramel, vanilla and sweet nut flavor. By the way, on the first Oktoberfest drank dark beer. Although light beer in this recipe can also be used.
From flour, butter and beer knead smooth dough. Spread it on a plate, cover with a bowl and leave for half an hour.
On a floured surface roll out the dough very thin, close to 1 mm. the Dough is pliable, it is very good work.
I get two large plates of dough and, accordingly, two large rolls.
Sprinkle the dough with grated breadcrumbs.
Distribute the filling.
Roll the roll. Carefully place on a baking sheet.
Sprinkle the roll with sugar and sesame seeds. In several places, pierce with a fork and bake at a temperature of 160-170 °C until Golden brown.
The dough is very fragile, so ready strudel leave a little breathe and cut into portions pieces warm.
Before serving, the pie can be sprinkled with powdered sugar. Very tasty - from brown sugar.
Serve the roll warm.
