Daring Bakers' Challenge : Apple Strudel



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.




Apple strudel is very dear for me because it was almost the only dessert my father, a painter and a great cook, would make or talk about.
I really enjoied making it but this is a very busy month so I couldn't 'dare' too much and I went for the classic apple filling.
Thanks Linda and Courtney for the great choice !
Visit the Daring Bakers' Blogroll to have lots of different strudel types !!

Meno male che hai di nuovo il PC!!!
Bellissimo il tuo strudel, che sfoglia sottile!
Ci riprovo al più presto, stavolta aspetto solo mezzora!
Se anche stavolta non viene bene, ti sequestro finche non mi insegni!!!!
