Total Time:
1 hr 45 mins
2 strudels


  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 3 large eggs, well beaten

  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil, divided

  • 1 tablespoon white sugar

  • ¼ cup water


  1. Sift together all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl.

  2. Mix eggs, 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, and sugar in a small bowl. Quickly stir into the flour mixture. Mix in approximately 1/2 of the water. Knead into a soft, pliable dough, using more water as necessary.

  3. Cover dough with a tea towel and allow to sit at least 1 hour while desired filling is prepared.

  4. To use, divide into two parts. Cover half the dough with plastic wrap while you roll out the other.

  5. Carefully stretch the dough into paper thinness on a lightly floured surface (a clean cotton sheet is ideal) and lightly brush with remaining vegetable oil. Fill and bake as desired.

Editor's Note:

Top strudel dough with poppyseed or apple filling, leaving a 1-inch border. Roll into a log. Brush the edge of the dough with water or milk, then pinch to seal. To bake, preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place strudel, seam-side down, on a greased baking sheet or parchment. Bake until golden brown, 45 minutes to 1 hour.
