Amaretto Apple Strudel with Phyllo

As I saw this recipe I found that would be something that we all would love and the preparation seemed to be quick for me. Usually I make strudel-dough myself and the phyllo variation would be a way to prepare it when I have less time and in a hurry.
I took my phyllo and I shocked seeing that the sheets were broken (probably to long in the freezer) and rolling it would have been a real challenge. At this moment I asked the help to my husband, I placed the broken phyllo sheets on a silicon mat. I covered a rectangular cake mold with aluminium foil and I greased it. I placed some on the sheets pieces in the mold with overlapping pieces.
Carefully we rolled the strudel using the mat and we transferred it into the mold with the additional sheets. we folded the borders of the sheet over the strudel and brushed the surface with a mixture of water and melted margarine.
Finally we removed the strudel from the mold and foil…..wow! The strudel had been saved and result amazing! So delicious with the amaretto addition!
Thanks a lot Nancy for this awesome recipe we enjoyed it very much with some vanilla ice cream as suggested!

Featherweight Apple Pie



We all enjoyed this very much and was very happy I could serve this to our unattended guests. They were very surprised about the dough, how juicy was the filling and from the great taste. Yes, this is really a recipe I can recommend.

1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons cup sugar or splenda
3 tablespoons unsalted butter, cut into small chunks
2 tablespoons ice water (or more if needed)
4 medium apples, peeled, cored and sliced no less than 1/4-inch thick

3/4 cups rolled oats
5 tablespoons all-purpose flour

Chunky Apple-Pecan Cake


We adored this wonderful apple cake! It’s quick and easy recipe which worked perfectly. I reserved some nuts and some raisins which I placed at the bottom of the mold and gave the cake a special rustic look without need to glaze it!

I reduced to butter quantity to one spoon and I increased the apples to 5 cups (!) as I have lot of them. This was not a problem and the cake resulted perfect. I’m sure that the original quantities would work well as well!


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted (I used only one tablespoon)
  • 2 cups dark brown sugar ( packed)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups cubed parted tart apples ( about 1 lb.) (I used 5 cups)
  • 1 1/2 cups pecan halves
  • 1 cup golden raisin

2 Tbsp cold water
2 lb cooking apples, tart peeled, cored and thinly sliced

3 Tbsp milk
cream or custard, to serve
