How to prepare cherry strudel with the simple recipe

  1. First prepare the strudel pastry (alternatively you can use the classic ready-made puff pastry to speed up the preparation). Mix the flour , oil , vinegar and salt in a bowl .
  2. Then slowly add the water , kneading first with a spoon and then transferring everything onto the pastry board. You will have to work it until you get a smooth and homogeneous dough.
  3. Let it rest for half an hour under an overturned bowl.
  4. In the meantime, remove the stalk from the cherries , wash them and remove the pits.
  5. Place them in a container and add the sugar , the breadcrumbs , the cinnamon , the grated rind of the lemon (organic, please) and finally the amaretti biscuits crumbled with your hands.
  6. Roll out the dough with the help of a little flour until it reaches a thickness of 2-3 mm .
  7. Distribute the cherries leaving a border of about 3 cm all around and then roll up .
  8. Close the ends and turn the strudel so that the closure is facing down.
  9. Brush it with milk then sprinkle with brown sugar .
  10. Cook at 160°C for 45 minutes , leaving it to cool before serving.

Cherry strudel is a delicious variation of the classic strudel (the one with apples). Alternatively, if you have many ripe fruits available, you can prepare cherry jam : it is delicious and perfect for preserving its flavor even during the winter .


Cherry strudel can be kept outside the refrigerator for up to one day. In addition, we advise you to store it in a cool place to prevent the fruit from deteriorating.
