Apple Strudel Bake/ apple crisp

Pat Duran


This is often called apple strudel although the real strudel is made with a thin layer of dough encasing the apples or other fruit or cheese before it is baked.Like an apple wrapped in dough,baked.
This recipe is the modern way if you call a 50 year old recipe modern.
Many of you and your mothers probably made it this way though- because it was quick and easy and in these modern days mothers had an outside of the home workplace and less time in the kitchen so the recipe got shortcuts. I call this Apple Crisp.
Many still call it Apple Strudel.
I will post grandma's German recipe later.
