  • 700g apples
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 75g raisins
  • 25g ground almonds
  • 50g butter, melted
  • 8 sheets of filo pastry
  • Sprinkling of icing sugar
  • Ready-made custard


  • Preheat the oven to 190ºC (gas mark 5). Peel, core and chop the apples into small pieces.

  • Place the apples into a large microwavable mixing bowl along with the sugar and cook on a high heat for 3 mins in the microwave to soften the apples. Stir in the raisins, cinnamon and almonds and mix well.

  • Place a piece of greaseproof paper onto a baking tray large enough to fit the filo pastry then sprinkle with icing sugar.

  • Lay each piece of filo pastry onto the greaseproof buttering each layer as you do so. Spoon over the apple mixture leaving a 2cm cap around the edge.

  • Carefully fold the filo pastry up around the filling like a Swiss roll using the greaseproof paper to help. With a knife score the strudel into portions making sure to only cut half through the pastry. Brush with the remaining butter.

  • Place the strudel into the oven and cook for about 35 mins until lightly browned.

  • Remove the strudel from the oven, dust with a little more icing sugar and serve with custard.
