strudel bread

Inspired by the German apple strudel and the British Chelsea bun, I created a fusion between the two in the form of strudel bread. Fruity, buttery, and all around delicious, each slice is about 156 calories.

Preparation Time: 3 hours
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Makes: 15 servings

500g wholemeal bread flour
300ml water
2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tsp Truvia sweetener (or 1 tbsp caster sugar)
tsp salt
2 baking apples
50g sultanas
100g margarine
1 tsp cinnamon
1tbsp soft brown sugar

Pre-heat oven to 200 ༠C/ 180 ༠C fan/375 ༠F/5 Gas.

Melt 50g margarine in a saucepan, then add it to the mixture.

Drain the sultanas and pour the water into the flour to form a dough.

Knead the dough for ten minutes, then roll out with a rolling pin.

Cream 50g margarine with soft brown sugar, and then spread ⅔ over the dough.

Core, peel and chop the apples and scatter ⅔ over the dough.

Scatter the sultanas on top.

Roll up the dough tightly into a sausage shape.
Spread the remaining margarine over the top and stick on the remaining pieces of apple.

Dust with cinnamon and bake in the oven.
