If you’re feeling adventurous and want to try making strùdel at home, here are a couple of recipes to get you started. For a classic apple strùdel, you will need thinly sliced apples, sugar, cinnamon, raisins, and breadcrumbs. Roll out the dough, spread the breadcrumbs, and layer the apple mixture on top. Roll it up and bake until golden brown.

For a savory strùdel, you can try a spinach and ricotta filling. Sauté spinach with garlic and mix it with ricotta cheese, Parmesan, and nutmeg. Spread the mixture on the dough, roll it up, and bake until crispy.
