Ninja Air Fryer Apple Strudel
Tip: You can soak the raisins in spiced rum to get more depth of flavour.
- 4 apples – peeled and grated
- 1 tbsp lemon juice
- ½ tsp cinnamon
- ¼ tsp nutmeg
- 60g raisins
- 40g brown sugar
- 275g ready rolled puff pastry
- 1 egg for brushing
- 2 tbsp breadcrumbs
Place grated apples in a strainer, pour over lemon juice and squeeze lightly to remove excess juice from apples.
Place apples in a large bowl, add sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, raisins and combine well.
Insert pot in the unit and close lid. Select BAKE, set the temperature to 170°C and time to 25 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin preheating.
While unit is preheating, spread puff pastry out, sprinkle the middle with breadcrumbs which will help absorb juices from the apples during baking. Place apple mixture down the middle over the breadcrumbs. Cut sides of pastry unto approximately 1 cm wide strips. Beginning at the top, fold left strip at a 45° angle over the apple mixture, then do the same with the right strip. Continue repeating this until you have “braided” all the strips and tuck the bottom strips that are sticking out underneath the strudel.
Once unit beeps to signify it has preheated, line the pot with baking paper and place strudel in the pot diagonally. Close lid and cook for the first 10 minutes.
Add egg to a cup and whisk. When there is only 10 minutes left on the timer, open lid and brush strudel with the egg. Close lid to continue cooking.
When cooking is complete, carefully remove Strudel from the unit and allow to cool down. Serve slightly warm with vanilla sauce or your favourite ice cream.
