TWO AUSTRIANS ON A MISSION TO BRING DELICIOUS, AUTHENTIC STRUDEL TO THE U.S.
Little Austria was started by two young Austrians on a mission to find authentic apple strudel in the United States. Determined in their pursuit, they decided to take things into their own hands.
Equipped with a rolling pin and a lot of enthusiasm, they started baking. The word got out quickly and the couple needed to buy a whole bakery’s worth of equipment to keep up with the growing demand.
Today, Little Austria is proud to offer an authentically delicious strudel experience, by staying true to the traditional technique of hand-stretching the dough and by using locally sourced, high quality ingredients.
"The taste has perfection of flavor, sweetness and crunch. I felt as if I was at home eating mommy's cake. The people are also very warm- heart people, their products reflects their kind heart."

What is Strudel?
LAYERED AUSTRIAN FRUIT / CHEESE PASTRY
A flaky, layered, lightly sweet pastry of fruit or cheese popular in Austria. The word "strudel" comes from the German word "whirlpool" due to it's swirled, layered appearance. Strudel-baking is truly an art that lies in finding the perfect balance between its paper-thin hand-stretched dough and its delicate filling. The dough's ingredients are quite basic (flour, water, oil, vinegar, salt) but, the tricky part is stretching the dough so thin that you can read a newspaper through it.
The most common filling is based on apples. But fillings can pretty much be made with an endless variety of ingredients, such as topfen (sweet, soft quark cheese), cherries, pears, berries, plums, even spinach and more.
Our strudel recipe is also not secret. We would encourage you to try it out!
