Strudel with Jam and Walnuts


Yeast preparation:
2 tbst bread flour
2 tbst sugar
2 tsp active dry yeast
200ml lukewarm milk

500g bread flour
1 egg
zest from 1 lemon (grated)
1/2 tsp salt
2 sticks of butter, softened

1 egg yolk

1 jar jam (17oz/480g)
150g ground walnuts

Warm the milk to be about the temperature of your finger. Mix flour, sugar and dry yeast. Then add milk into it and mix. Allow it to rise (should take about 15 minutes).

Add all dough ingredients and the yeast mix into the mixer. Mix until the dough is uniform.

Transfer the dough onto a clean surface where you previously sprinkled a little bit of flour. Divide the dough into 4 parts.

Stretch the each part of the dough with a rolling pin to about 1/2 cm thickness. Then spread the jam and sprinkle ground walnuts. You can use any jam you like. We had raspberry jam and it worked very well.

Roll it.

Transfer the rolls into a pregreased pan. You can grease the pan with butter, margarine or just oil. Once the rolls are in the pan, apply the glaze.

Bake at 400F until golden brown. This can take 20-30 minutes depending on your oven.

Allow it to cool down, then cut into slices and serve.
