  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 12 medium Jonathan Apples, peeled, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 cup raisins (not packed down)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • cinnamon, sprinkle a lot
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup bread crumbs, lightly sprinkle

Dough instructions:

Mix together flour, water and salt until nice and elastic. It's essential to really develop the gluten. If you have a heavy duty Kitchen Aid Mixer, you can use the bread hook and beat on high for about 5 minutes. Then finish by kneading by hand. Let stand for 1/2 hour.

Assembly Instructions:

Place sheet on table, sprinkle with flour. Roll out dough then begin stretching until it is paper thin and covers the whole table. Layer the remaining ingredients in the order listed. Carefully roll up with the sheet, form into a horse shoe shape, place on a well greased pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hr or until nice and brown.

This is very good served with ice cream.

Note:Look at this site for a good explanation of the assembly technique.
