Apple Puff .....not looking forward for the week!

Happy Sunday Peeps!.........I'm not looking forward for the next week because it's exam week not me but for Alya. Looking at the exam timetable I feel pity for her. Bahasa itself has 4 papers and she's only 10. Enough of this rambling!!!! Let's see what I've made yesterday for tea :))))

I get the recipe from here.....Yes the recipe says it's apple strudel not apple puff but since I use ready made puff pastry I think it's fair to call it Apple Puff rather than Apple Strudel hehehee :)))

This is the puff pastry that I use which is available at any stores.

Ingredients for filling:-

  • 5     Granny Smith Apples....peeled and sliced
  • 110 gm of sugar or about 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1/2  tsp of cinnamon powder
  • 7     gm of corn flour
  • 50   gm of raisins
  • 35   gm butter
  • 2     tbsp sliced almonds
  • powdered sugar.......or icing sugar for presentation
  • juice and zest from 1/2 a lemon

Method :-
  1. Place a pan on a medium heat. When hot, add the butter, let it melt and then add the apples. The apples will need to be cooked through, which will take about 7-10 minutes in total. Stir them occasionally. After a few minutes, add the sugar and mix again.
  2. Let it cook for about a minute more and then add the raisins, almonds, and cinnamon and mix.
  3. Now combine the lemon juice, lemon zest, and corn flour in a little bowl and add them to the apple filling. Stir it in thoroughly and let it thicken. Then, remove the filling from the heat and place it on a metal tray to cool.

For the Apple Puff....
  •  Preheat the oven to 180 C
  • Take 1 piece of the puff pastry (thawed)
  •  Arrange apple filling down the middle of the pastry lengthwise. 
  • Fold the pastry lengthwise around the mixture. Seal edges of pastry by using a bit of water on your fingers, and rubbing the pastry edges together or else you also can use a fork pressing onto the edges of the pastry. Whisk egg and milk together, and brush onto top of pastry.
  • Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden brown.
Note: With this filling I was able to make about 12 pieces Apple Puffs.

I served the Apple Puff with ice-cream and custard sauce. For custard sauce recipe please click here
