Traditionally Strudel is made with apple, and this roulade is a similar idea to a strudel but with a different filling.

This is a classic roulade dessert which is not over sweet, and looks and tastes impressive.

One slice is not enough!

Preparation Time: 20 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Makes: 8 servings

cup dried apricots, chopped
2 tbsp apricot jam
1 tsp lemon juice
50g light brown sugar, or coconut sugar
2 pears, peeled, cored & chopped
1-2 tbsp slivered almonds
50g melted butter
8 sheets filo pastry
Icing sugar for dusting -optional

Put apricots, jam, lemon juice, brown sugar and cut pears into a pan and heat for 5 - 7 minutes (do not use more than the recipe states or there will be too much liquid).

Cook these ingredients

They will then look like this.

Cooked filling

Allow to cool.

Mix in slivered almonds.


Preheat oven to 195C

Using a baking tray lined with Glad Bake, layer the pastry, brushing between each layer, with the melted butter.

Spoon the filling down the filo, keeping it to one side of the centre and leaving a bit at each end to tuck in.

Lift the other side of the pastry by carefully folding it over the pear mixture.

Dust with icing sugar if required.
