Healthy, because

Even smarter

This recipe is a great dessert for after a meal. It is higher in sugar and calories, but the fruit is good for you and it is important to have a balanced diet that includes treats sometimes. 

You can substitute pears for apples or other suitable fruits and you can serve alongside vanilla ice cream or whipped cream.

Preparation steps


Put the flour into a bowl with the salt and make a well in the middle. Pour the oil and 1/2 cup lukewarm water into the well and work to a smooth, elastic dough. Shape the dough into a ball, wrap in cling wrap and leave to rest at room temperature for about 20 minutes.

Mix the apple slices with the raisins, sugar, cinnamon and cream.

Roll the pastry out on a floured cloth, then carefully stretch the pastry over the backs of your hands until wafer thin. Brush with the melted butter and sprinkle with breadcrumbs. Spread the apple mixture evenly on the pastry and scatter with chopped walnuts.


Roll up the strudel using the cloth to help you. Place on a buttered baking tray with the seam side underneath. Brush with milk and bake in an oven preheated to 375°F for about 40 minutes. Take out and leave to cool slightly. To serve, dust with icing sugar and cut into slices.
