Wine Strudel

Boros Rétes


  • 4 tablespoons sweet butter
  • 1 cup freshly made white bread crumbs
  • 2 cups medium-sweet white wine
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large strudel sheet, or 2 small ones
  • 2 tablespoons clarified butter


  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Melt the sweet butter and brown the bread crumbs for a few minutes. Stir to prevent burning.
  2. Add 1 cup of the wine. Remove from heat and stir in the sugar.
  3. Sprinkle the stretched strudel dough with clarified butter. Put the filling on the dough and roll as usual.
  4. Twist the strudel into a spiral and place in a deep baking pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 15 minutes.
  5. Pour the second cup of wine over the strudel and return it to the oven. Bake until wine disappears. At that point the strudel will start crisping. When it is golden brown and crisp, in 30 to 35 minutes, remove it from the oven.
