Easy peasy cheapskate Apple Strudel!

So today I had a lot of left over apples from last week which weren’t the best to eat as they had lost their crunchiness. I didn’t want to waste them so I thought I would make a fool proof apple strudel!


  • 5x  apples, peeled, quartered, cored, sliced
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, plus extra to serve
  • 1/4 cup sultanas (optional)
  • 8 sheets filo pastry
  • 60g butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups vanilla custard, to serve
  1. Cut apples into small pieces and add them to a pot on high heat
  2. Add the 1 tablespoon of sugar and the cinnamon with approximately 2table spoon of water
  3. Cover the pot with a lid 
  4. Stir for about 10minutes or until the apples are soft
  5. Remove lid (add sultanas if you want) and continue to cook until the water has evaporated
  6. Once apples have cooked, place aside to cook.
  7. Combine the rest of the sugar and cinnamon into a bowl.
  8. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius 
  9.  Get some baking paper and place 1 sheet of pastry on the paper
  10. Brush pastry with melted butter and sprinkle abit of sugar on top for an even coat.
  11. Put another pastry and brush again with butter then sugar. Repeat this until 4 layers are created.
  12. Scoop the apple mixture into the middle of the pastry
  13. Fold the ends of the pastry to enclose the filling
  14. Either oil spray or line a baking tray and transfer the strudel seam side down
  15. Brush the top with left over butter and sprinkle some sugar on top
  16. Place in oven and bake for 30-35minutes or until golden
  17. Once finished set aside for about 5minutes and serve with custard

And that’s how you get rid of some apples that aren’t as yummy as they use to be 😛 ENJOY
