I also wanted a authentic German Apfel Strudel, and because I was making enough to serve about 60 people I wanted something easy! I substituted raisins for the poppy seed, but it turned out great!!!! Will definately use this recipe again!
I did not enjoy this at all!!!!!!! The dough was impossible to work with, and was rock hard when it came out of the oven, Not to mention that the poppyseeds where disgusting. (although I should have known better) I didn't see how it could possibly taste good. Oh well, you win some you lose some! Thanks for the recipe anyways, I guess I am just a little bitter because I made it for a dinner party and it did not go over well.
For Oktoberfest, I wanted real apfel strudel, not something made with a box cake mix. This recipe was straightforward and easy to do. Peeling 9 small apples took awhile, but hey! I wanted authentic. I only used about 2/3 c water to make the dough. More would have been too sticky and hard to roll. Be sure to chop the apples so that they roll up evenly in the thin dough.
Ground poppy seeds is a popular ingredient in European recipies. Millions of people love it, so trust me, be a little open-minded and try it! Lots of delicious filling and very small amount of pastry. Sounds good to me!
This isnt authentic Apfel Strudel by any stretch of the imagination. It is a recipe for apple /poppy roll or even Mohn Kuchen or even apple cake but definitely not an authentic apple strudel. It looks good though.
Lots of time an effort yielded a miserable result. The dough was, as another reviewer said, impossible to work with and hard as a rock when cooked. The ratio of filling to dough was also way off. Skip this one.
This is not apple strudel this is Monkuchen. You can buy them prepackaged at the grocery store in Switzerland. They freeze well. I was an aupair there for a year. They always had it for Nueni (their nine o'clock coffee and sweets ritual).
This is a great dessert! Please take note, since I grew up on this stuff I know that Poppy Seed Strudel is supposed to be more like a cookie. I have never eaten strudel with a fork! I guess If I tried I would say it was hard. We would cut them into slices about three quarter inch thick and stack them on a big plate in the middle of the table and everybody would take what they wanted.
