  1. Step 1

    Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Combine the apple, lemon zest and lemon juice in a bowl. Add one-third of the breadcrumbs and half the almond meal. Stir to combine. Stir in the sugar, sultanas and cinnamon. Combine remaining breadcrumbs and remaining almond meal in a small bowl.
  2. Step 2

    Place filo pastry on a clean work surface. Cover with a damp tea towel. Brush 1 sheet of pastry with butter and sprinkle with a little breadcrumb mixture. Top with another sheet of pastry. Brush with butter. Sprinkle with a little more breadcrumb mixture. Repeat layering with remaining pastry, butter and breadcrumb mixture, finishing with pastry. Spoon apple mixture along 1 long side of the pastry stack, leaving a 3cm border on short sides. Fold short sides in and roll up the pastry to enclose filling.
  3. Step 3

    Place strudel, seam-side down, on lined tray. Brush with remaining butter. Bake for 40-45 mins or until golden. Set aside on a wire rack for 5 mins to cool.
  4. Step 4

    Dust the strudel with icing sugar. Slice and serve with whipped cream.
