Apple and Berry Strudel

Musician and performer Loick Essien requested an apple dessert from us. Not only does he have our apple flapjack crumble recipe to have a go at but we also cooked up an apple and berry strudel for him. With slightly stewed apples, a handful of berries and lovely crisp filo pastry this dessert is a family favourite. Served with custard, of course!
