Daring Bakers - Strudel!

Sorry for the late posting!

The May Daring Bakers’ challenge was hosted by Linda of make life sweeter! and Courtney of Coco Cooks. They chose Apple Strudel from the recipe book Kaffeehaus: Exquisite Desserts from the Classic Cafés of Vienna, Budapest and Prague by Rick Rodgers.

I really enjoyed this challenge, but I found the final product a little flat. I think the reason was that I used unsalted butter. I think that if I had used salted butter, the additional salt would have enhanced the dough.

The dough was a dream to work with, I didn't find it to be sticky at all. I only made a half batch as I was the one to eat it all! I used apples and cinnamon as the filling.

The bread crumbs I found I had too many of, so I only used about 1/2 that I was supposed to.

Here is what it looked like going into the oven. Looks authentic! I will make this recipe again, and I was definitely inspired as what other Daring Bakers used this recipe to make.

yes the recipe used way too much breadcrumbs I did what you did use only 1/2. Like your series of photos = good to hear that your finding some inspiration from the DBers. Cheers from Audax
