Since I adore strudels and I am an original from Vojvodina where is this dessert famous, I can't help but buy more recipes for this delicacy. This recipe is a recipe of my aunt that I kept for years. My mom makes it differently, but regardless, both are phenomenal and delicious and the dough rises and becomes soft, and they are even worse when they stand for 1-2 days. So if you get the urge to make it, follow this recipe.
Strudel excellent recipe Lena
Ingredients: medium, total time: 140 min, 15 persons
700-800 g of flour
a cube of fresh yeast/ 40 g
300 ml of milk
1 whole egg
2 egg yolks
1 grated lemon zest
100 ml oil
1 teaspoon salt
5 tablespoons of sugar for the dough
For the poppy seed filling
600 g of poppy seeds
6 Tablespoons sugar
some milk/100 ml
100 g of raisins
Stir the yeast in lukewarm milk and add a spoonful of sugar and flour and leave in a warm place for the yeast to rise.
Whisk the egg yolks with 4 tablespoons of sugar and then add oil, a little salt and then at the end gradually add flour and yeast with the milk that has risen.
Knead everything well and combine to make the dough completely smooth and leave it on warm to rise the dough for 40 minutes.
For the filling: heat a cup of milk well and add 6 tablespoons of sugar and 600 g of poppy seeds and stir over a low heat for a few minutes for 10-15 minutes. Then add the washed raisins.
From this dough, make two balls. Roll them out with a rolling pin to the thickness of a finger, then coat with the filling and wrap in a roll, connect the ends a little with your fingers if the filling should not come out.
Take a baking tray and place the baking paper and transfer both strudels and leave them to stand for 30 minutes.
Turn on the oven to heat to 180 degrees during this time. Coat both strudels with egg yolk before baking and bake them for 40 minutes. Buon appetito!
Note: You can also combine raisins with poppy seeds filling if you wish.
You can also make this strudel with walnuts, or one with poppy seeds and the other with walnut filling, so I always prepare it like this.
350 g of ground walnuts
honey to taste
1 Tablespoon sugar
1 vanilla sugar/10 g
a little milk or water/ 100 ml
