Beer and apple strudel

A few tricks for a perfect beer strudel

  • If you have too juicy apples, it could happen that your strudel will be as if wet after baking. To prevent this, you can squeeze the apples slightly before adding them to the dough. It also helps to sprinkle the dough with breadcrumbs, ground nuts, coconut or oatmeal.
  • A proper strudel should be so-called rolled, thinner doughs are better rolled. If your dough is too thick, you can choose a folded one instead of a rolled one to make sure that the dough cooks well.
  • Before putting it in the oven, it is recommended to make several holes in the strudel with a fork or skewer. These prevent possible cracking during baking or flattening of the strudel after taking it out of the oven. This is because the steam from the apples will be able to escape through the holes.
  • In addition to the egg, you can also use a mixture of butter and sugar to coat the surface of the strudel, which will create a crispy caramel crust on the surface.
