Scrumptious strudel

An Austrian dessert classic.

The earliest recipe on record for strudel, at the Vienna City Library, is from 1696, and it's pretty much been one of Vienna's most popular desserts ever since, a flaky pastry filled most often with apple and cinnamon but sometimes sweet cheese, cherry, poppy, plum, and other fillings. It can be found all over town, but if you are a true dessert devotee, we have a tasty suggestion. The Café Residenz at the Schönbrunn Palace offers a 20-minute class in strudel preparation every hour on the hour - followed, of course, by consumption of your classwork.
