Is there an alternative for the apple strudel with using the microwave to cook the apples? We don't own a microwave but would love to make this…. Thanks in advance 👍😉

Avacarho says:

Apple strudel….YUM! Thanks for making this awesome dessert (or breakfast). ~Heads to the kitchen for my ATK Seasons 1-19 cookbook~

Daniel Nanton says:

Thank you very much for such excellent explanation. I would like to know how to apply the same idea from the Apple bundt cake to banana cakes, given I live in Costa Rica and bananas are very easy to find but banana cakes don't really taste as they should.

Cheri Finkbiner says:

My favorite bundt cake ever is a rum cake. Oh wow, is my mouth drooliing.

F G says:

wow !!! Das ist ein sehr gut aussehender Strudel

GeminieCricket says:

I always plump my raisins first on the stove to maximize the flavor and texture.

zeegap tunes says:

15:32 “it’s a nightmare” and the two of them chuckling afterwards. I love them!!!

Ken More says:

that Strudel is a labor of love.

lodevijk says:

No offense, but I wish this channel didn't have this TV format with forced jokes, overproduced camera work, rhethorical questions, etc. I much prefer Dan's videos. He tells you what he needs to say without having another talking head ask the question.

Ellen McIntyre says:

OMG…how long did Erin have to experiment with the strudel recipe? patience x10!!
The apple bundt cake is beautiful! I wouldn't call it an easy dessert recipe, however. The time spent assembling, cooking & cooling…close to 4 hours, correct? Just sayin'….AND, do the other people in the kitchen get to eat the delicious things you make?!?💕

It Burns says:

That cake looks very moist, and I imagine the reduced cider adds a ton of apple flavor. Very clever idea.

Nocturne22 says:

Made the apple cake as cupcakes – took a long time to bake since they're so dense, but very delicious.

Ilostmypick says:

That cake looks AMAZING!!! Now I just have to figure out how to make it without eggs so I can eat it.

Afghan kitchen says:

Great channel. New friend.

CarolJ2013 says:

I would have liked to have seen a stoneware bundt pan tested as well. I use to have one and loved it!

Rojer Grison says:

Just made the cake today , but instead of the frosting I served mine with a warm homemade caramel sauce served over the cut piece . was a big hit .

Fourthgirl says:

I have my mother's Nordicware bundt pans from the 50's. I swear you could knock someone out with them they are so heavy. I love them!

Phoebe Gavin says:

The intro trips me out. I feel like I'm watching 90s daytime tv.

nakea simone says:

I love this show!! Do it still come on public television? This recipe seems so easy . I’m definitely in the “non raisin” camp lol

abcrag abc says:

Absolutely amazing! I have been wanting to make an apple bundt cake for a long time, I just haven't attempted it yet because I've been looking for a good bundt pan I just didn't know where to began looking for one. I'll have to look into the one you used. Thank you all for making it so simple to learn such a yummy recipe!
