That shows just how famous the Viennese Apfelstrudel has become. However, the long journey was worth it! Prepare the dough yourself, or have the shop-bought dough to hand. Steep the raisins in the rum and leave to soak. To prepare the nutty breadcrumbs, heat the butter in a pan until it bubbles up.

Add the breadcrumbs and fry slowly over a moderate heat until golden brown. Towards the end, stir in the grated nuts , cook through quickly and remove from the heat. Peel the apples , cut into slices and quickly sprinkle with lemon juice. Then, depending on the acidity of the apples, add a suitable amount of sugar and powdered cloves , and mix in a generous pinch of cinnamon. Ideally, prepare the strudel dough in such a way that the strudel ends up laid onto a sheet of baking paper.

Distribute the nutty breadcrumbs over around half of the dough. Scatter the apples and raisins over it. Coat the remaining surface of the dough generously with melted butter, fold in the edges at the sides and roll up the strudel. Seal the ends well and lift the strudel into the baking tin using the baking paper if using puff pastry, apply the apple filling in the centre, fold up the sides and edges towards the middle and press the sealing edges together firmly.
