Ooh I was really looking forward to attempting my first ever strudel - it'll be too sharp with bramleys won't it?

Filo needs to be eaten today. What else could I do with it?

Just add more sugar and a big handful of sultanas. Strudel is cooked, they are cooking apples, It will be fine.

Aren't Bramleys cooking apples? Aren't strudels cooked? <confused>

Just shove a load of sugar in.

Ooh more sugar do you think? Don't have sultanas. Might give it a whirl!

More sugar, it'll be fine.

This may be my general philosophy in life

I was worried because the recipe said eating apples but NOW I'm worried about that!

Bramleys are cooking apples? Really??
I love eating them blush <<learns something new today>>

Yy to more sugar to strudel - it'll be fine. And cinnamon. Yum!

Yes Bramleys are cooking apples.

CuriousMama Mon 21-Jan-13 16:31:13

Strudel with cookers in it.

Thanks all - will report back!

Pacific I can't believe you eat them! Do they not give you tummy ache like my mum said they would? grin

PacificDogwood Mon 21-Jan-13 17:29:25

No, they don't blush
I am not sure whether I am just a greedy pig with a constitution of steel or whether they will give me a sore stomach now that I know that they are supposed to... confused.

Hope your strudel turns out delicious!

They are actually the perfect apples for strudels. I make my traditional Austrian Apfelstrudel with sweet breadcrumbs (fry breadcrumbs with 2 tbsp of sugar and butter until golden brow) and spice apples with cinnamon.
I've also got some other nice recipes on my blog using bramley apples

Ooh nice blog, will have a peruse!

It's in the oven!

Trazzletoes Mon 21-Jan-13 20:48:03

DH eats them too and doesn't get tummy ache.

Let us know how it tastes!

IHeartKingThistle Mon 21-Jan-13 21:01:06

I am eating it! It's not bad!

It was sitting in a puddle of apple juice when it came out - is that normal? No soggy bottom though, surprisingly. I do think it needs sultanas though.

Thanks everyone! Now to convince DH to help me eat it (he doesn't do hot fruit confused.
