Classic Apple Strudel / Klasična štrudla od jabuka

Apple strudel is just the thing when you need to quickly whip up a desert. Or when you have a ton of apples at hand. It’s simple, delicious and can hold for a couple of days in the fridge. Of course, nothing beats the taste while it’s still hot, fresh from the oven. But, you can prep and wrap the rolls beforehand and just pop the tray in the oven an hour before you need it done.

INGREDIENTS:

(Yields 10 very generous servings / 0.38 EUR per serving / 3.85 EUR for whole)

1 pack (10 sheets) of phyllo pastry (1.60 EUR)

10 medium sized apples (1.33 EUR)

4 tbsp butter, divided (0.47 EUR)

4 tbsp sugar, divided (0.01 EUR)

1 tsp cinnamon (0.10 EUR)

1 tsp pure vanilla extract (0.03 EUR)

½ cup raisins (0.26 EUR)

½ cup milk (0.06 EUR)

Butter or vegetable oil for coating the baking tray (0.01 EUR)

Powdered sugar for serving (0.01 EUR)

METHOD:

Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease large baking tray which can hold all 10 strudel sausages and set aside. Alternatively, you can also divide strudels between smaller trays, so grease those accordingly. Unwrap stacked phyllo pastry sheets on flat clean surface to allow the dough to rest a bit. In a small saucepan on stovetop, or in a cup in a microwave, melt 3 tablespoons of butter. Wash, peel and grate the apples, discarding the cores. Pour melted butter over grated apples, add 3 tablespoons of sugar, cinnamon, vanilla and raisins and mix everything well using a spatula or your hands. Put about 2 heaping tablespoons of the apple filling on each pastry sheet, arranging it in a single line through the sheet’s length. Gently wrap the pastry sheet and place on a prepared tray. Repeat until all filling and pastry sheets are used up.

Place baking tray in a center of the oven and bake for around 30 minutes, until strudels are golden brown and crispy on top. Meanwhile, melt the remaining tablespoon of butter with milk and remaining sugar and simmer until the mixture warms up. You can also use microwave for this step. When the strudel is done, turn the oven off, drizzle warm milk mixture over it, carefully (it’s going to be very hot!) cover the tray with aluminum foil and place in still warm oven for 15 minutes. The liquid will soften the strudel and make it amazingly yummy and juicy. If you’re a fan of a crispy strudel instead, skip this step.

Allow strudel to cool for about 15 minutes before serving, sprinkled with powdered sugar.

Štrudla od jabuka je prava stvar kada trebate na brzinu smutiti desert. Ili jednostavno imate hrpu jabuka pri ruci. Jednostavna je, ukusna i može stajati i do nekoliko dana u hladnjaku. Naravno, ništa nije bolje od svježe, tek pečene štrudle. Ali možete sve pripremiti i zamotati štrudlice unaprijed, i onda ih samo staviti da se peku sat vremena prije nego ih trebate gotove.

SASTOJCI:

(Za 10 veoma izdašnih porcija / 2,83 kn po porciji / 28,34 kn za sve)

1 paket od 10 listova za savijače (12,00 kn)

10 srednjih jabuka (10,00 kn)

4 žlice maslaca, podijeljene (3,50 kn)

4 žlice šećera, podijeljene (0,05 kn)

1 žličica cimeta (0,07 kn)

1 žličica ekstrakta od vanilije (0,20 kn)

½ šalice grožđica (2,00 kn)

½ šalice mlijeka (0,50 kn)

Maslac ili ulje za namastiti pleh za pečenje (0,01 kn)

Šećer u prahu za posluživanje (0,01 kn)

PRIPREMA:

Zagrijte pećnicu na 180°C. Namastite veliki pleh za pečenje u koji stane svih 10 štrudli i stavite na stranu. Naravno, možete podijeliti štrudle i na manje protvane, pa si onda namastite njih. Razmotajte listove za savijače na čistoj ravnoj površini kako bi se tijesto mrvicu opustilo. Na štednjaku u malom lončiću, ili u mikrovalnoj u šalici, rastopite 3 žlice maslaca. Operite, ogulite i naribajte jabuke, a bacite kocenove. Prelijte rastopljeni maslac preko jabuka, dodajte 3 žlice šećera, cimet, vaniliju i grožđice, pa sve dobro promiješajte špatulom ili rukama. Dužinom svakog lista za savijače, u tankoj liniji, raspoređujte oko 2 vrhom pune žlice nadjeva od jabuka, pa nježno zamotajte i slažite u namašćeni pleh. Ponavljajte dok ne potrošite sav nadjev i listove.

Stavite napunjen pleh u sredinu pećnice i pecite oko 30 minuta, dok štrudle ne postanu hrskave i zlatno-smeđe. U međuvremenu rastopite preostali maslac, dodajte šećer i mlijeko, pa kuhajte dok se ne ugrije. To također možete napraviti i u mikrovalnoj. Kada je štrudla pečena ugasite pećnicu, pa prelijte smjesom mlijeka. Pažljivo (jer je jako vruće!) prekrijte pleh aluminijskom folijom i stavite u ugašenu pećnicu na 15 minuta. Štrudla će od tekućine omekšati i biti baš sočna i fina. Ako više volite hrskavu štrudlu, preskočite ovaj korak.

Ostavite štrudlu da se hladi 15-tak minuta prije posluživanja. Poslužite posipano šećerom u prahu.
