We Know Strudel
TRADITIONAL & AUTHENTIC
Little Austria® is a leading manufacturer of traditional & authentic premium strudels.
Strudels coming out of our ovens are hand crafted and made with highest quality and locally sourced ingredients. The traditional recipe calls for a stretched strudel dough, which is what we perfected over the years.
We make our strudels with delicious, sweet and savory fillings without using any artificial extras, corn syrup or palm oil. Our apple strudels are 100% plant based.
We trust a network of national distribution partners to bring our products to your doorstep.
You can also find our strudels at local farmers markets and events in the DMV area.
TWO AUSTRIANS ON A MISSION TO BRING DELICIOUS, AUTHENTIC STRUDEL TO THE U.S.
Little Austria was started by two Austrians, Berni and Helene, who were on a mission to find authentic strudel in the United States. Not finding what they were looking for, they decided to take things into their own hands.
Starting out of a shared kitchen and equipped with a mixer, an apple peeler, and a rolling pin the two started baking. The word got out and the demand for strudel grew quickly. After a year of baking, and not being able to keep up, they needed to buy a whole bakery’s worth of equipment to keep rolling out the dough for their sought after strudels.
Today, Little Austria has grown into an award winning manufacturing business offering a delicious strudel experience by staying true to the traditional technique of hand-stretching the dough and by using locally sourced, high quality ingredients, to craft what is the most popular dessert in Austria - Strudel!
"If you want a special treat, try this strudel! It is the best!"

What is Strudel?
A DELICIOUS, DECADENT PASTRY
A flaky, layered, pastry of sweet or savory fillings, very 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 be made with a sheer endless variety of ingredients, such as sweet cheese, cherries, pears, berries, plums, spinach, potatoes and many more.
Our apple strudel recipe is also not secret. We would encourage you to try it out!
