Make the best of cherry season this year and make our cherry strudel stuffed with cranberries and almonds. This strudel is a classic dessert and you can serve it warm – which we love – or cold as well. Precooking the cherries ensure that the fruits are tender and you get a rich and thick filling. The cherry strudel tastes delicious with whipped cream, vanilla custard and ice cream!
What cherries should I use?
We prepared our strudel with fresh, pitted and stemmed black cherries. You can also use frozen and defrosted or jarred cherries, or the same amount of canned tart cherries. In this case, simply skip the macerating of the fruits and instead cook the filling right away. If you prefer to make the strudel with sour cherries, you may omit the lemon juice and use 150 g (3/4 cup) sugar.
