This beautiful Apple Strudel Cake is a fun take on the classic Apple Strudel dessert, filled with a deliciously spiced apple cranberry filling.
It’s somebody’s birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ME!!!
So! You know how you feel 21 until you’re in a room with a bunch of 21-year olds, and you now know you’re definitely not 21?!
Yeah. That’s what’s up.
Swear! I was like, “heeeeeey who cares! Welcome 36!! pssssht! BUT, I feel 23, and that’s what’s important!!” And then, over the weekend, a bunch of 21-year olds were in my face and I was all, like, “get me out of here!!! They are SO… 21!!!”
Also? My head and my neck hurt like hell the following day because I had 2 Tequila shots. 2! At 23-years old I was able to down 10 and walk away, sober. Now?! Um. Not so much.
I’ll just stick to my White Sangria – hasn’t resulted in a hangover, yet.
You know what else doesn’t result in a hangover?! CAKE!
This cake recipe took some contemplation on my part. I know it doesn’t fall into the typical birthday-cake category, but I’m also not your typical girl, either.
Thus, in true Katerina fashion, this, actually, is my kinda cake!
Don’t get me wrong. I do love me some beautiful, frosted, layered cakes, but I can really appreciate something a tad bit different. Like last year’s French Silk Tart. LOVE that stuff!
This Apple Strudel Cake also spells out comfort. Apples, cranberries, and cinnamon nestled in between layers of crispy, flaky, sweet phyllo sheets … ah, be still my heart. It’s so good that when one slice decided to slip off and fall on the floor, I picked it up and swallowed it whole! Like, in one bite. And no 10-second rule. Other than that, it’s pretty much AMAZING. In fact, it’s CAPS-LOCK-WORTHY-AMAZING!
Now, I’m off to enjoy the rest of my birthDAY!
P.S. You know what sucks about not being 21? Memory loss. I forgot to hit the “schedule” button on this post – you should have received this 12 hours ago. Oh well! It’s still my birthday! 😀
