Spiced apple strudel

Packed full of fruit, nuts and Christmas spice. An apple strudel is basically a healthier version of an apple pie (it originates from Austria) and uses filo pastry rather than shortcrust or puff. Caster sugar helps to balance the tartness of the cooking apples but if you're watching your sugar intake, use eating apples instead and omit the added sugar.

    1. Preheat the oven to 180C. Mix the apples with the golden caster sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, vanilla extract, sultanas and lemon juice and zest.

    2. Heat a knob of butter in a large frying pan and add the apples, cut side down. Cook gently for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until the apples are nicely caramelised, but still holding their shape. Stir in the chopped walnuts and leave to cool.

    3. On a clean tea-towel, lay a sheet of filo pastry in the centre and brush lightly with the melted butter. Lay another sheet on top and repeat with the rest of the filo. Pile the apple filling along the shorter edge, leaving a slight border at the sides.

    4. Using the tea towel, roll the pastry up tightly to enclose the filling, tucking the sides in as you go.

    5. Place the apple strudel on a lined baking tray, seam-side down, and brush the top with the remaining melted butter.

    6. Scatter over the granulated sugar and bake for 35 minutes or until golden and crisp on top. Leave to cool at room temperature before dusting with icing sugar and cinnamon. Serve with custard or Greek yoghurt.
