As I continue posting about the Russian foods we had during the Olympics I come to the strudel. Russian strudel? Who knew! We picked this up at the Russian deli because, well, Mr. L pretty much likes anything cherry flavored.
This was made locally at a place called the Cinderella Bakery & Cafe in San Francisco. Alas the strudel seemed to us to be a bit stale. Had great flavor, but I would love to try some fresh. I'm not a strudel connoisseur so I can't tell you if this is anything like regular strudel, but I'm willing to try more strudel to find out!
Ingredients for this were puff pastry, raisins, cherry filling, walnuts, lemon, sugar, and cinnamon. 1 slice was only 80 calories...made for a good little snack after dinner.
The Cinderella Russian Bakery and Cafe (the back of the packaging didn't have the "Russian" in the name) sounds like a wonderful place to go try out some new to us foods. It looks like they have some amazing Easter goodies. Hopefully Mr. L and I can stop by the next time were in San Francisco.
