TOPFENSTRUDEL


Some things are just not that easy or even possible to make without gluten. Croissants for example. Yes, it's been done, but in the end it's a glorified Crescent roll. Sorry.
Another traditional European dessert, Strudel, real Strudel, just cannot be made gluten free. There are some images online of gluten free apple strudels, but again, as with the Croissants, they don`t look all that good.

The good news is, that this one, a Topfenstrudel (Quark), has a gluten free filling. So I was able to bake some of it separate for Isabella and Victoria, while I enjoyed one of my favorite meals. With vanilla sauce. Which is gluten free as well. 

I think I am doing better than Domino`s here. No possible cross contamination in this house.....
