How to make it

  1. Heat butter in a pan. Once melted, add the breadcrumbs and, stirring all the while, toast them until lightly golden.

  2. Soak the raisins in water for about 10-15 minutes and then drain thoroughly.

  3. Roll the pastry sheet out on a baking paper to about 50 x 60 cm.

  4. Cut the apples into small cubes and, in a bowl, mix them with the toasted breadcrumbs, the pine nuts and raisins

  5. Distribute this mixture over the puff pastry sheet, leaving 8 cm of upper border empty.

  6. Mix the sugar with the cinnamon and then sprinkle over the mixture. Finish it off with some butter flakes.

  7. Roll the strudel starting from the long edge (the lower filled side), using the baking paper as support. Tuck the ends in and roll seam-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Pierce the surface with a toothpick.

  8. Preheat the oven to 180 °C and bake for about 40-45 minutes, until golden brown.

  9. Let it cool at room temperature and then dust with icing sugar.
