Friday 17th April – Easy Peasy Austrian Apfelstrudel: 

Classic Austrian Apfelstrudel is super easy to make! This old-fashioned, traditional Viennese apfelstrudel recipe uses simple ingredients, like apples, raisins, sugar, cinnamon  and a cheeky splash of rum and is encased in a thin sheet of dough.

This strudel is perfect all alone on a plate but tastes even better, with some vanilla sauce, whipped cream, or a scoop of vanilla ice cream 😋

Ingredients 

🥚Dough:

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
13 tablespoons lukewarm water
2 tablespoons neutral cooking oil
1 teaspoon neutral cooking oil

 

🍞Filling 1:

7 tablespoons butter
1 cup breadcrumbs

 

🍏Filling 2:

6 to 8 cups apples (5 to 6 large chopped apples, such as Gala or Granny Smith)
3/4 cup/150 g. granulated sugar
1 to 2 teaspoons lemon zest
4 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup melted butter (for brushing dough)

Garnish: ​confectioners’ sugar for decoration
Optional: 1/2 cup raisins
Optional: 4 tablespoons rum (or orange juice) 😋🥃

Steps to Make It Make the Dough 🍶
1. Place the flour in a bowl with the salt and add the water, then 2 tablespoons oil. Stir with a spoon until it comes together and you can work it with your hands.
2. Knead the dough until it is smooth and tacky, but not sticky, about 5 minutes. If you need to add more flour, add only 1 teaspoon at a time.
3. Form the dough into a smooth ball, brush it with 1 teaspoon oil and place it back in the bowl for 1 hour at room temperature. Covering the dough with plastic wrap is fine, too.

Make Filling 🍞
1.Heat 7 tablespoons butter in a pan until foaming and add the breadcrumbs.
2. Toast them, stirring constantly, until they are medium brown. Let cool.

Make Filling 2 🍏🥃
1. Soak the raisins in the optional rum (or orange juice). You can heat them for 30 seconds in the microwave and then soak them until you are ready for them.
2. Peel, core and chop the apples into small pieces. Add the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, raisins, and cinnamon and mix well.

Assemble the Strudel 👨‍🍳
1. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board to about 13 by 9 inches. Lightly flour a clean towel with no nap, place it over the dough, grab both (towel and dough) and flip over. Straighten both, as necessary.
2. Using your hands, gently stretch the dough thinner on all sides, working your way around the sheet of dough. Stretch it until it starts to look translucent in spots. Let it rest a minute and again stretch the areas you think are too thick. Thick edges can’t be avoided and will be cut off. Brush dough with melted butter.
3. Spread the breadcrumbs over 2/3 of the dough and pat down evenly. Drain the apples and spread them over the other 1/3 of the dough. Cut off any thick edges of dough with kitchen shears. Using the towel, fold one side of the dough over the filling. Brush exposed dough with melted butter.
4. Fold in ends of dough like an envelope (or burrito). Fold the other side of dough up and over filling to form a roll. Brush with butter. Use the towel to maneuver strudel to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Roll strudel onto parchment paper so that the seam-side is down. Brush with melted butter.

Bake and Serve🍴
1. Heat oven to 400 F / 200 C. Bake for 20 minutes and then reduce heat to 350 F / 170 C and bake for an additional 40 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven, brush the top with melted butter and sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar while still warm.
2. Transfer to a serving platter with a large spatula (or two). Cut into 1 1/2-inch-wide slices with a bread knife or serrated knife and serve with your choice of whipped cream, vanilla sauce, or vanilla ice cream.

Tuesday 14th April – Comedy Club Fondue Cooking Class:

 

We’ve hunted for a fool-proof fondue recipe with a Tyrolean twist. Prep this with your crew before settling into the sofa for Altitude Comedy Hour at 17:30 (GMT), so you’ve got your belly full when you’re belly laughing! Complete with a fine wine, good company and great comedy.
Traditional Tyrolean Cheese Fondue Recipe:
• No fondue pot needed!
• Incredible chEASY make-at-home recipe!

🧀 Fondue Ingredients:
1 1/2 Tbsp. butter
1 Tbsp. cornflour
1/2 Tsp. salt
1 cup milk
1 cup grated cheddar cheese (mild/medium)
1 cup grated Emmental or Gruyere (Camembert also works!)

🤤 What to dip in cheese fondue?
French bread (torn into bite-sized pieces)
Ham or salami
Broccoli or Green Beans (steamed)
Cornichons
Cherry Tomatoes
Apples (sliced)
Potatoes (diced and fried in butter, olive oil and a pinch of salt, until golden and soft inside)

*There are plenty of other options for dipping in fondue – pretty much everything tastes better when dipped in cheese! 

👩‍🍳How to make Tyrolean Cheese Fondue:

  1. Melt the butter over low heat and then add the cornflour, stirring until well combined – you can use a fondue pot or a saucepan on the stove – either method works great! If you have an electric fondue pot, turn the temperature slightly above warm as the temperature gets very hot if you go higher than this!
  2. Mix the salt in well and then add the milk. Stir continually over medium-low heat until boiling. Continue to stir and boil the mixture for one minute.
  3. Turn the heat down slightly and then add the cheese.
  4. Mix just until the cheese is melted and serve with all of your favourite dippers!
