Prep Time: 15 mins
Cook Time: 30 mins
For the Dough:
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons olive oil
pinch of salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar
150ml warm water
For the Filling:
4 tablespoons bread crumbs
4 apples, peeled, cored, and sliced
1/2 cup raw brown sugar
1/2 cup dry raisins
1/2 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon cardamom
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons melted dairy-free butter, for brushing
icing sugar, for serving serve
Preheat oven to 180°C and line a baking tray with parchment paper. Soak raisins in hot water for 15 minutes, drain and set aside for later use.
In a large mixing bowl combine flour, oil, salt, baking soda, vinegar and water. Use your hands to knead into a pliable dough. Place the dough in a bowl, cover with a kitchen towel, and leave it to rest in a warm place for 30 minutes.
Prepare the filling. In a mixing bowl combine apples, sugar, raisins, walnuts, vanilla, cardamom and cinnamon.
Place the dough on a kitchen towel dusted with flour. Using a rolling pin, roll it out as much as possible. Use your hands to carefully pull out the dough, until it is about 3mm thin. Scatter breadcrumbs across the dough and spread apple mixture evenly. Roll the dough to form a classic strudel shape and seal the edges well. Brush strudel with melted butter and transfer onto the prepared baking tray.
Bake for 25–30 minutes until golden. Dust with icing sugar, cut into slices and serve. Enjoy!
