Light and Crunchy Apple and Pecan Strudel
I found this recipe of Jamie Olivers whilst trying to find a way of using up the last of the wind fall apples. Perfect centre piece covered in icing sugar for entertaining or just treating your self as we are! This is such a quick recipe and although sounds laborious is surprisingly simple to put together! I found one layer of the brown sugar caramelised and the other layer remained fairly crunchy in other parts which works well with the hard pecans and the soft sweet apple. I particularly like the fact that you add fresh chopped apple rather than pre-stewing the apple as I personally think this over sweetens the fruit.
And of course not forgetting best served hot with coffee or caffe latte ice-cream! Mmm….
P.s I left out the cranberries!
