How to do:

Apple Strudel recipe

1. Weight all the Ingredients needed and set them aside.

2. Place the flour on a large cutting board. After that build a small mountain with a hole in the middle and break in the egg. Add the Apple cider vinegar and Oil.


3. Start kneading the dough with two dough scrapers (so that your hands stay cleaner).

Treat the dough smoothly.


4. After the dough has reached the desired consistency and form, place it under a stainless steel bowl. Let the dough rest 15-20 minutes there.


5. While the dough rests, cut the apples into thin 1cm square slices. Boil them in a pot with cinnamon and brown sugar for about 10 minutes. Add the Raisins 3 minutes before the end ( you can add some vanilla flavor at this stage as well). Add Coconut flour and oil to the apples, set aside.


6. Roll out the dough slowly (it should be very elastic by now). The finer the better, but take care that the dough does not break in the middle.

7. Fill the Strudel dough with the apple filling and sprikle the alonds on top of it. Roll the left and right outsite part of the dough in. After that roll gently the long remaining side in so that the calssical strudel form is created.


8. Gently roll the dough on a with a small piece of butter pre fatted baking sheet. Take good care when rolling it over and make sure the less beautiful side is on the downside. (sprinkle with flour in between so that nothing sticks). Pre Heat the oven 190 Degrees circulating air.


9. Lastly, Grease the strudel with liquid butter on the baking sheet and place them in the middle of the oven. Bake around 45-55 minutes until golden brown.

Vanilla Sauce recipe

Place all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat to medium-low and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, until the mixture thickens, 10-15 minutes (or keep cooking until desired consistency). If needed use potato starch dissolved in cold water to thicken the sauce slowly and with care.
