Whom would I recommend? For all those in a hurry and for all lovers of Austrian strudel. Also for apple pie lovers and those who have their cellars filled with a number of apple boxes. This cake, unlike many others, provides the opportunity to consume more than two apples 🙂

Pay attention to some tips:

  • For the cake, it is better to choose softer apples, because when baking they soften and then melt in the mouth. Winter apples are harder, they are better kept in cellars, of course, but can be a little too crispy and hard for this cake. In comparison, spring apples are soft, easy to cut, and when baked in the oven they soften and look like apple jams.
  • Use raisins to flavor the filling. Before adding them you can soak them in hot water – the raisins will become softer.
  • If the Phyllo Dough is frozen, thaw it half an hour before baking. It is important that the dough does not stick together. Never unwrap it. Cover with a towel to prevent it from drying out too quickly. You can freeze the rest of the dough as it usually doesn’t have a very long shelf life, but keep in mind that after a long time in the freezer, the dough becomes very brittle.
  • Spread the first sheet of Phyllo Dough on a baking mat to prevent it from sticking to the table. Also, the dough will not tear when wrapping.
