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.
We are going through a so called golden October. Cold in the morning, sunshine and blue sky during the day. A weather for Buchteln. A typical austrian type of bun. Ovenbaked yeast dumplings filled with jam.
It’s autumn, when you get up in the morning and it’s no more 22 degrees but 2. Brrrr…. Altho during the day the sun shines beautiful. The local fruits: apples, pears, plums and nuts are ready for harvest. So today we will do something with plums – a poppy seed plum strudel!

I always make this tomato ketchup in summer, when tomatoes are of abundance – from our garden or from the shop. Tomato ketchup tastes very good with grilled chicken or turkey.
