Alright the photo doesn't look much, but this quick Apple Strudel was DELICIOUS. Here's how it was done:
One sheet of Jus Roll ready rolled puff pastry, taken out of the fridge 10 mins before use so it's pliable.
3 large cooking apples peeled, cored and diced (ours were from my friend's garden which is always nice!)
A handful of mixed dried fruit
A generous sprinkling of dark brown muscovado sugar (or any sugar if you don't have this)
Non-dairy milk, for brushing
Step one: Preheat the oven to gas mark 7 / 220C. In a large bowl toss together the diced apple, sugar and mixed fruit.
Step two: Lay the pastry on a baking tray so if it was folded in half length ways it would be in the middle of the tray. Tip the fruit mix onto the pastry and level along the length of the pastry. The fruit should look like a sausagey mound. Brush around the edges of the pastry with milk and fold the pastry over on itself to create a roll. Use a fork to press down the edges so they stay together and then brush the whole strudel with milk and sprinkle with a bit more sugar. Score all along the top of the strudel, about five slits.
Step three: Bake for approximately 30 minutes, until risen and golden. Remove from the oven and leave to stand for a few minutes and then EAT IT ALL IN ONE GO!!!
We had ours with Alpro soya custard :-)
