Now you can make the apple strudel from Inglorious Basterds and eat it too

So, about that strudel scene from Tarantino’s Inglorious Basterds. The hot apple strudel, topped with whipped cream and too much suspense for us to take, was simply cinematic food porn at its best. We love that The ShortList actually got the head chef at the Cotswold House Hotel to come up with this epic strudel recipe for Tarantino aficionados everywhere to make.

Feeds: 8
Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking time: 25 minutes

Vegetable peeler
Chopping board
Large baking tray
2 Large bowls
Pastry brush
Large pan with lid
Weighing scales
Food processor

1 x 250g Filo pastry pack
100g Unsalted butter (melted)
4 Large Bramley apples (about 800g once peeled and deseeded)
100g Pecan nuts
1/2 tsp Ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp Ground nutmeg
Three slices of white bread
80g Demerara Sugar
80g Light brown muscavado sugar
100g Sultanas
Pinch of salt
6 tbsp Dark rum
Icing sugar for dusting

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Peel, core and finely slice the apples. Place the large pan with lid on a high heat, add the apples, sugar, salt, sultanas and spices. Cook for 8-10 minutes stirring occasionally.

Once the apples have started to break down around the edges, remove from the heat and allow to cool. Meanwhile, place the nuts and bread on an oven tray and toast for 6 minutes, turning the bread half way through. When toasted place in a food processor and pulse a couple of times (until you have chunks the size of large porridge oats). Once the apples have cooled, combine with the chopped nuts and bread, add the rum.

You will need 8 sheets of filo pastry, the melted butter and the pastry brush to hand.

Place the first sheet of filo pastry length ways away from you and brush liberally with melted butter. Next, take another sheet of filo pastry and overlap on to the first by three fingers. Brush with butter and sprinkle the pastry with 2 tsp of Demerara sugar. Repeat this process with the other filo pastry sheets. Butter the second layer, butter and sugar the third layer, and then only butter the fourth layer.

Take the apple mix (filling) and spoon onto the edge nearest you, leaving a three finger gap between the edge of the pastry and the filling on all three sides.

Fold the flap of pastry nearest you over the filling, brush with butter and fold in both sides, brush again with butter. Start to roll the pastry and filling away from you, brushing the pastry with butter as you go.

Once rolled, carefully place the Strudel onto a buttered, large baking tray. Sprinkle with Demerara sugar and place in the preheated oven for 25 minutes.

Hans Landa gets pretty excited about the cream in this scene, and he’s right, it makes all the difference. Remove from the oven, sprinkle liberally with icing sugar and serve warm with whipped cream for that authentic Inglourious Basterds look. Ice cream or good old English clotted cream work just as well.’
