Apple strudel (or štrůdl in Czech) is great comfort food and really simple to make. I know you can go to Tesco’s or Lidl’s and buy it for a quid but I still like to make it from scratch. I admit I don’t make puff pastry from scratch, tried that once and don’t think I’ll try again, it’s just so time-consuming. Sometimes I’ll make strudel with shortcrust pastry and it tastes just as good as with puff, if not better – it’s just a matter of individual preferences I guess. When I can’t be bothered to make any kind of pastry I just buy a pack of chilled (puff or shortcrust) and it’s pretty good with that too. So how do you make a Czech apple strudel?
