Categories : Pastry
Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method -- -- --
2 1/2 cups flour
1/2 cup warm water
4 tablespoons oil
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
Place flour in a bowl. Make a well in the center and add the rest of the
ingredients. Stir with a spoon or fork then with your hands kneading and adding more flour. Knead about 10 minutes or more. It will stick to your
hands and to the board, but keep kneading and adding very little flour. You
should have a soft and elastic dough.
Place in a bowl, brush with 1 T oil, cover and let rest in a warm place at
nearly room temperature, for 1 hour.
4 balls. Place a small tablecloth on a
24 by 16 (measures are approximate, you can use a smaller board) raised board or table. Sprinkle it with flour. Meanwhile roll out dough on a floured board,
as thin as possible with a rolling pin, then lift it with your hands and using your floured knuckles, start pulling underneath the dough closer to
the edges, turning it as you go. The weight will help stretch.
Carefully transfer it to the prepared board (the one with the floured
cloth). Slowly and delicately pull the dough toward the edges of the board
and down around the board. If some holes start showing, press them
together. If the holes are small don't worry, they won't show in the end,
but stop stretching.
Place filling along longer edge of dough, about 1 1/2 away from edge.
Brush dough with oil, sprinkle bread crumbs and holding one side of the
cloth roll up dough.
If making sweet strudel, sprinkle sugar and cinnamon as well. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
