Midnyte Snack - Apple Strudel - Daughter of Smoke.

Welcome to Midnyte Snack, the feature that combines books and food!  
What could be better?
Book: Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor.

Snack: Apple Strudel.
I'm not a huge fan of strudel.  However, while reading Daughter of Smoke and Bone by Laini Taylor, I wanted to be in the that little cafe where Karou and Zuzana frequented and I craved apple strudel and tea.

Okay, so I should have read this recipe carefully.  It said "1/4 brown sugar."  1/4 cup?  1/4 tsp?  I mean, I'm fairly intelligent so I knew it was 1/4 Cup, but still.  Also, if you'll notice the recipe calls for 1 teaspoon cinnamon and then 1/2 teaspoon cinammon.  Huh?  I used the 1 teaspoon in the apple mixture and then the 1/2 teaspoon in the topping. 

Apple Strudel

6 layers philo dough
1/4 brown suger
1 stick butter
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 granny smith apples, peeled, cored and diced
2 Tablespoons sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup raisins.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stack layers of dough, brushing each layer with butter before topping with next layer.  Brushe top layer with butter.  In a bowl combine, apples raisings, sugar and cinnamon.  Spoon filling down the left long side of phyllo rectangle.  Fold top edge down and bottom edge up by about 2" to cover filling.  Roll dough up along side to enclose filling.  Brush log with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture.  Bake for 30 minutes or until golden and puffed.

It may not have been the best presentation, but it still tasted great!

I totally just said this to you on twitter, but Midnyte Snack = YES!! Raisins (and mushrooms) have no purpose on this earth, but apple strudel... YUM. That looks amazing. Now I'm calculating how I can finish my kids' homework, get them to bed, and have time to make strudel! Haha.

Ooh, fun! I'm not sure if I've ever actually had apple strudel, but this looks good. And I agree, when I read Daughter of Smoke and Bone (I'm actually rereading it right now), I wished I were at Poison Kitchen with Karou and Zuzana.

OMG that looks yummy!

I like how you don't have to roll and cut like so many recipes I've seen. That initiates me so I've never made strudel.

I'm going to try this one.

What a lovely idea! I personally don't like apple, but it is fun to try recipes from books you loved.

@Felicia-I usually leave out raisins too, but they weren't too overpowering.
@Julie - It was!
@Jennifer-I love mushrooms!!! This was actually not that hard to make.
@My anxious life-I like to cook too, but I don't always have time.
@SweetMarie-I was never a huge fan of apple strudel, but this tasted so much better than store bought or even from a bakery.
@Karen-I always go for the easiest recipe.
@Aurian-Reading about food makes me hungry and want to try what the characters are eating.

Oh. My. Goodness. Looking at this at midnight was not a good idea. What a fantastic idea. Mmm, sitting at a cafe in Prague eating Apple Strudel sounds pretty amazing.

Awesome post, Pam.
