Apfelschlangerl – An Austrian Apple Cake

, , , , , , ,

Apfelschlangerl  – typical Austrian again – just like the Apricot Dumplings and Buchteln.

Surprisingly this apple cake is not really known in Germany. In Bavaria they would call it apple strudel, but its not an apple strudel. The apple strudel is more a long drawn-out dough.

This dough is easier to process, consisting of flour, curd cheese and butter only. Over night in the refrigerator, then just roll it out…

So enjoy trying out.
