Pumpkin & Apple Strudel

2 comments Apr 19th, 2010 | By | Category: Desserts and Sweets, Recipes

This delicious pumpkin and apple strudel I have dicovered at my colleague Monambelles blog. I varied the ingredients slightly as I could not find dates that her recipe required. I used raisins instead, which worked just fine.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
baking time: 45 minutes
easy recipe


  • a small pumpkin
  • 3 apples, sour
  • a hand full of raisins
  • a hand full of walnuts
  • 170 gram of brown sugar
  • 1 bio lemon
  • 1/2 kilo of phyllo dough


Peel and dice the pumpkin. Bake in the oven at 180 degrees centigrade for 30 minutes.

Peel and dice the apples and put together with the raisins and the chopped walnuts into a bowl. Add some lemon zest and lemon juice. Add the sugar adn mix well.

Take the pumkin out of the oven and mix with the apples.

Spread out the filo dough on a floured surface. Put spread the filling like a little wall along the long side (form left to right) of the dough. Keep a bit of space at all sides. Fold over the sides to prevent the filling form falloing out. Now roll the dough, wrapping the filling. Bottom to top of the phyllo dough.

Close the dough at both ends. spread some butter ontop and bake for 40 minutes at 170 degrees.

Let it cool down to cut.
