Apple Braid

I continue my apple journey. Today's theme - an apfelstrudel, or as my husband calls it "an alfa-strudel", the king of all strudels. Actually, this is not the real deal. This is my variation - the way my grandmother used to make it and she was no Austrian and never heard about apfelstrudels as they are made in Alps.

This is a really easy recipy. The most complicated part, I think, was to recover the raisins from little Sun Maid boxes.

I used a prepared frosen fluffy dough, apples that I picked myself, raisins, a cap of sugar and a handful of crumbs for filling. Here it is:

Then the fun part: you have to roll the dough in an almost perfect rectangular and make parrallel diagonal slits on 1/3 of the dough on two sides, like this

Start braiding, wrapping one strap after another, from the left and from the right, untill you make this nice long braid:

Here it is - finished:

And after 35-40 minuts on 395 degrees you will get this beauty:

Ta-daaaaa! Mmm... hot!
