National Strudel Day

Today we celebrate the crispy confection known as "Strudel".


According to nationaldaycalendar.com, "the word strudel means whirlpool or eddy. This tasty dessert is perfectly described in its German language as the sweet mixture of fruit, sugar, spices, and layers of thin dough rolled together and baked. The result is a bubbling, flaky treat. As a breakfast item or dessert, apple strudel goes well with coffee and tea. Consider adding it to a brunch or bake ahead for guests. Often served at bakeries and coffee shops, strudel can also be a savory dish."


In honor of today, here's a few ways you can homage:

📍Add a dollop of whipped cream, confectioner's sugar and scoop of ice cream to your apple strudel.
