EASY APPLE STRUDEL
Approx 1/2lb of puff pastry ( I purchased a 11b box and used half for this recipe)
1tsp vegetable oil
1/2 cup raspberry jelly
1/4 cup almond meal
1/4 cup raisins
1/2tsp ground cinnamon
Confectioner’s sugar for dusting
Preheat the oven to 350 F
Grate the apples and place in a colander lined with paper towel to drain
Roll out a rectangular block of the pastry. You need to roll it out into as thin as possible a rectangle (measuring about 10 x 15 inches).
Lightly brush the pastry with half the oil leaving a 1 inch border.
Spread the jelly over the pastry. Squeeze any remaining moisture out of the grated apple and then pile on top of the pastry. Sprinkle with the almonds, the raisins and finally the cinnamon.
Carefully roll from the long edge of the rectangle to form a thick log. Make sure the seam in underneath and very carefully transfer to a greased baking sheet.
Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown on top. Cool on a wire rack and dust with sugar before serving.
I like to serve it with either plain yogurt, or creme fraiche.
If you wrap it in foil and stick it in the fridge, it will keep for up to 3 days. You can re-heat it for 20 minutes in a warm (320 F) oven.
