“This recipe was handed down to me by my Austrian-born Grandmother and I make it all the time, so please do trust me! I am sincere!” - by Jo Vandevelde
Original recipe yields 1 - 9x13 inch dish
- In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, egg and water and stir vigorously until mixture forms a dough. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 10 minutes, until smooth and elastic. Cover and let rest 1 hour.
- Grind poppy seeds in a food processor, if desired. Combine poppy seeds, sugar and cinnamon in a medium bowl and mix well; set aside.
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
- Place the dough on a large work surface covered with a cotton cloth. Stretch the dough slightly to form a large rectangle. Pour the melted butter over the dough to moisten. Carefully stretch the dough into a large rectangle as big as your work surface will allow. The dough should be very thin and translucent.
- Sprinkle the poppy seed mixture evenly over the stretched dough. Distribute the apples evenly over the poppy seed mixture. Sprinkle with about one half of the cream. Roll each side of the dough carefully to the middle and fold the ends under the strudel. Cut the strudel in half and place the two halves side by side in the prepared dish. Sprinkle with the remaining cream.
- Bake in preheated oven 1 hour, until golden and apples are tender.

"I did not enjoy this at all!!!!!!! The dough was impossible to work with, and was rock hard when it came out of the oven, Not to mention that the poppyseeds where disgusting. (although I should have k..." See morenown better) I didn't see how it could possibly taste good. Oh well, you win some you lose some! Thanks for the recipe anyways, I guess I am just a little bitter because I made it for a dinner party and it did not go over well."
"I also wanted a authentic German Apfel Strudel, and because I was making enough to serve about 60 people I wanted something easy! I substituted raisins for the poppy seed, but it turned out great!!!!..." See more Will definately use this recipe again!"
"For Oktoberfest, I wanted real apfel strudel, not something made with a box cake mix. This recipe was straightforward and easy to do. Peeling 9 small apples took awhile, but hey! I wanted authentic...." See more I only used about 2/3 c water to make the dough. More would have been too sticky and hard to roll. Be sure to chop the apples so that they roll up evenly in the thin dough."
