    A local bakery dropped a fresh one by the office today just after lunch. Perfect timing too. I'd just returned to my office after fetching a nice cup of coffee when one of the ladies placed a paper plate with a giant slice of apple goodness on my desk.

    Don't take much to make me happy.....

    It's mostly eaten in this pic.

    It is good.

    There is a pastry call kuchen that is made in the upper plains states, I can't remember if it is Scandi or German. But I've had it made with apples in the Dakotas and it is good too. We were hunting around small towns on the plains and saw signs everywhere that said things like, "Freshly Made Kuchen," and asked, "What the heck is kuchen?"

    Oh yeah. And as a pre diabetic, whatever that means, I avoid most sweets even during the holidays. But if the girlfriend and kids get doughnuts, look out apple fritter. I know it's not the same...

    Apple Fritters are even better. Man...there's a bakery over near Madison Square Garden around 33rd and something in NYC called Daiuto's Bakery. They make apple fritters the size of your head. And they are so delicious. I used to get one of those and a cup of coffee in the morning and I'd be good till dinner.

    So much strudel I see around here is mostly pastry and little apple. That looks great!

    Strudel is good, crumble is better. :) In fact, just about anything with apple in it is good, except those weird things from McDonald's.

    Those things at McDonald's used to be delicious.....back when they used to fry them. Now that they're baked they are inedible.

    Many years ago I heard a comedian refer to those as "fruit napalm in a pastry crust." Yep, that it was.

    Anyhoo, apple strudel is pure joy if there are no got-dam raisins in it.

    I love apple strudel! I love anything sweet, in a pinch I could get by with pouring pet milk on the counter top along with some sugar and mopping it up with some left over cornbread.

    My wife and daughter like the fried ones, being brought up in Oz, but there are some cultural differences in my case. :) I'm a Brit by birth and mostly ate things like apple pie, crumble or suet pudding made with fresh Bramleys, a tart variety bred specially for cooking. I don't know if you have them in the US, they are rare in Oz, I've never seen them here in Toowoomba. Anyway, the point is that they never had any added flavouring, like cinnamon, and were never thickened with any kind of starch, though the were sometimes mixed with other kinds of fruit. The closest I have come to them here is Sara Lee apple pie - slightly sour and still a bit crunchy.

    If you can find it, try this version of apple strudel. My mother made it when I was a kid, and I've never had something like it since: (make sure and see the dough at 1:20)
