The History of the

Apple Strudel

Apple Strudel or apfelstrudel gets its name from of all things a whirlpool ?

The Viennese are who made this dish famous with their delicate thin layers of dough and filled with a sweet tart apple filling , sometimes with raisins or nuts. However its origins go back even further probably to the Greeks that first perfected this technique of making the thin dough for Baklava. They called it Phyllo which means ...leaf .Baklava has been improvised on and the Hungarians and the Viennese really perfected the Strudel.
