Preheat the oven to 180°C (360°F). For the dough: Put the flour, 1 pinch of salt and oil in a mixing bowl, gradually stir in about 80 ml (approximately 1/3 cup) of warm water, and mix into a smooth, soft dough. Vigorously knead on a floured surface for 10 minutes until the dough is flexible and smooth. Shape into a ball, cover and let stand for about 30 minutes. For the filling: Meanwhile, peel the apples, quarter, remove the core and seeds and cut into small pieces. Chop or grate the marzipan into small pieces and mix with the apples. Stir in the walnuts and orange zest.
Dust a cloth with flour, place the dough on the cloth, roll out the dough as thin as possible and slowly stretch the dough from the center towards the outside with the back of the hand until the dough is paper-thin but without holes. Cut off the thick edges of the dough, brush the dough with half of the melted butter and sprinkle with ground almonds. Arrange the apples on the bottom half of the dough. Leaving a 4 cm-wide (1 1/2 inch) margin around the edges, add the raisins on top of the apples and sprinkle with sugar and cinnamon. Place the edges of the dough over the filling and roll up into a strudel using the cloth. Place the strudel on a greased baking pan with the seam down, brush with melted butter and bake in the oven for about 40 minutes. Sprinkle the finished strudel with powdered sugar and serve warm with whipped cream.
