Servings: 12 Cooking time: 1 hour 20 minutes


Cherry strudel recipe of which you will readbelow, is one of the variations of this delicious pastry that came to us from Germany. It is considered a classic Viennese strudel with apples, but bake it with different fillings: from sweet - with all kinds of berries, to savory - with cabbage, meat, potatoes, mushrooms and so on.

The main thing is to understand the principle of baking: preparing the pastry as thin as possible and rolled cloth napkin, to make it easier was it to fold into a roll. Sloenost test is provided by multi-layer folding.

Strudel (ie roll itself) becomes quitelong. It is baked by bending in the form of the letter "P" or turning up, if you want to put it on a round baking tray. Still it is possible to cut a long piece of strudel at 2-3, but this option is suitable if you are using a fairly dry stuffing - potatoes or meat - or it will leak and burn on a baking sheet.
