Apple strudel with dry apricot cream

Today I bring you a recipe that I used in the last intensive «In home». (Private and fully customized cooking classes that I teach in the house of the person interested).

When I prepare recipes for courses of this type, I need to choose ingredients that are seasonal and prepare different recipes for each day.

The last intensive was 9 days, so I selected a total of 18 dessert recipes made with seasonal fruits as a base: apples and pears.

As I was running out of ideas … I had a look at some of the recipes in the book “Sweets without guilt for the whole family” by Jorge Limón, director of the Macrobiotic Institute of Seville … Et voilà! … I found a delicious, original and very simple recipe by Agnès Perez, director of the school for macrobiotics Ca l’Agnès in Cubelles.

Thank you very much Agnès for this nutritious and delicious dessert and thanks also to Jorge for having collected in your book this and other wonderful recipes to enjoy the desserts … without guilt!


4 apples, calculate 1 per person

6 to 8 dried apricots

a pinch of salt

Some vegetable drink

Cinnamon optional

Seasonal fruit to decorate


Cut the apples into thin slices of half a centimeter.

Place baking paper on a baking sheet and arrange the apple slices on top with a tiny pinch of salt. If you like really sweet desserts, you can add a little rice syrup on top. In our preparation I didn’t use it because the dried apricots already provides a lot of sweetness. Bake at 180 degrees until apples are done and the ends begin to brown.

While baking, cook the apricots in a saucepan with enough vegetable drink to cover them and a pinch of salt. Cook for about 10 minutes until they are very soft enough to blend.

Blend until you get a soft cream, if necessary add a little more vegetable drink. It should be creamy but not excessively liquidish.

Arrange the dish by placing a slice of apple and a little cream of dried apricots on top, another slice and another of dried apricots and so on until you have your 4 strudels.

When you place the last slice of apple you can fold it gently and place one or two fruits of the forest to maintain the fold and to simulate a flower.

Cook them with love … And enjoy them!
