Binging with Babish: Strudel from Inglourious Basterds

Published on Jan 23, 2017
Hans Landa is the sherlock-pipe-smokin', famous-actress-chokin', Brad-Pitt-pokin' SS detective we all love to hate. Sure he massacred Shosanna's family right in front of her, but hey, guy knows not-so-terrible strudel when he sees it. Follow along this week as we make old-school Viennese apfelstrudel, and don't forget the cream.

Basics With Babish Website:
1 1/2 cups bread flour (plus more for dusting, sprinkling, filling)
4 tbsp vegetable oil
2 egg whites
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 cup warm water (110F)
4 baking apples, peeled and sliced thinly
1/2 cup sugar
Zest of one lemon
1/2 cup raisins
1 tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts, hazelnuts, or almonds
1 stick butter, melted, plus more as needed
1 egg, beaten
1 cup heavy cream
1 tbsp sugar
Powdered sugar for garnish
Place flour in a large bowl - create a well in the center with your fingers, and fill with vegetable oil, egg whites, salt, and lemon juice. Mix with fingers until just combined, and sprinkle with water. Knead until a sticky dough forms. Turn out onto a lightly floured tabletop, and knead rigorously (slap onto the table about 100 times), until the dough is soft and supple. Place in a lightly oiled bowl and let rest for 30 minutes.
Combine apples, sugar, lemon zest, raisins, and cinnamon. Set aside and let liquid weep from apples.
Cover a large table with a cotton tablecloth, and liberally dust with flour. Roll out dough on tablecloth until about 24" in diameter, and using floured fists, stretch dough out as large as possible without tearing. Back on the tablecloth, gently tug at edges of dough until it's a rectangle thin enough to see the pattern of the tablecloth underneath. Trim off torn/thick edges. Drizzle with melted butter, and brush until evenly coated. Sprinkle with chopped nuts.
Place about 3/4 of apple mixture on one side of the dough rectangle, and using the tablecloth, roll the apples over onto the dough square. Brush the newly-exposed dough covering the apples with melted butter. Roll apples over again, and repeat, until apples are at the center of a long, closed roll. Pinch ends together to seal contents inside, and place seam-side down on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush liberally with a beaten egg.
Bake for about an hour, basting with melted butter every 10-15 minutes, as soon as the crust begins to look dry. Remove from oven when golden brown. Allow to cool at least one hour before slicing, dusting with powdered sugar, and serving.
In a small bowl, combine cream and sugar. Beat to stiff peaks, and pipe into a bowl, served alongside strudel.


  • This is brutal to watch it in the middle of the night!

  • Pretty sure it’s cream cheese. Not whip cream. Not so terrible. Awesome video.

  • Attendez la crème!

  • Sanji from one piece!

  • Miss out grinding cigarette butt

  • Wish I could like this video twice. So amazing!

  • To hard to make

  • You definitely deserved the title of Oma

  • I actually know this with one scoop of ice cream and vanill sauce.

  • Holy shit , this is a cooking show ! No ..... Im not doing all that.

  • But where's the pork? the strudel shown in the movie contains pork. Hence why the lady was disgusted (spoilers, she's a jew)

  • Nichts geht über einen guten alten Apfelstrudel

  • attendre la crème!

  • You forgot the milk

  • I wouldn't have added sugar to the cream, though, as whipped cream is usually not sweetened in Germany, Austria or Switzerland.

  • Nazi brunch it is


  • I came not cuz a movie

  • if i worked for the resistance i wound have poisoned the nazi in the strudel secne

  • According to the original Austrian oma recipe it's not lemon juice but the cest of the lemon in the dough

  • I ate this at my nazi meeting.


  • .........wait for the cream

  • Ugh...raisins. Who invented those things...

  • The Apfelstrudel is austrian, not german

  • I yearn for a racially pure Europe.

  • I fucking hate movie scenes like that where they're just sitting there acting awkward and the noises of flatware is super loud.

  • I cant wait to have a terrifying nazi brunch

  • *...or terrifying Nazi brunch...*

  • “Not very bad is it?”

  • Can you do one on your take on beef stew or curry?

  • *looking at the results” I am aroused

  • I would actually pay him 100 bucks to make me these

  • You didn't make a massacre serving the cream so it isn't strudel, is something else.

  • You forgot to stick a cigarette in it

  • Starts at :56

  • “Wait for the cream”

  • Non white ppl can do this?

  • Verdict?

  • Did you go to culinary school? How did you start doing this?? Btw you should do a Q & A video...i have so many question

  • you forgot the cigarette at the end, but looks pretty good

  • Is it just me or does this guy kinda sound like the khan academy dude?

  • Coud you do a vid with gordon ramsy

  • You and me gotta grab a slice some time

  • That's art.

  • How hot should the oven be for that hour?

  • You have no right to call my Nazi brunch "terrifying".

  • Just like the jew hunter says, always wait for the cream

  • I heard that the scene was so intense because Landa knew she was Shoshana and was basically trolling her by making her drink milk (she was being hidden in a dairy farm) and made her eat the streusel which is traditionally made with pork lard (she's Jewish)

  • Ah Yes I vas looking for zat perfect recipe I could zerve at my next Nazi Brunch.

  • That scene was so, delectable, despite the suspense and possible death; I would honestly eat the whole thing while being intimidated.

  • 110 degrees water at the start? bruh that's 10 above boiling that's hot as **** not warm. (Just kidding I know you mean Fahrenheit not Celsius :3)

  • I miss that intro

  • U never add raisins to strudel

  • It looks like a fusion between a breadstick and a Hot Pocket... Yum...

  • perfect.

  • My mother always bakes 2 Strudel a traditional Strudel with the apple/raisings filling and a savoury version with a mincemeat/ leek filling.

  • Gonna make this and experiment with fillings. I'm thinking strawberries, maybe some blueberries. Oh oh, try some cherry filling in a different one. Hmmm.... brown sugar and apple sounds wundebar too :D A Raspberry one as well

  • Eat this warm!! With icecream! ☺️ i‘m from Germany ☺️

  • The beauty behind this scene with Hans is that traditional strudel is made with pig lard and not butter. Hans knew who Shoshana was and deliberately fed her pork ( against her Judaism), milk ( against her “French” heritage [ French superstition ] ), and German cigarettes ( he says they’re not French, they’re German as an indication that he knows she’s not French, she’s Jewish )

  • This looks good! I do think that in the time period Inglourious Basterds is set lard or butter would have been used in the strudel instead of vegetable oil.

  • Finally something I can serve at my Terrifying Nazi Brunch. You something for the kids. Perfect on a Sunday.

  • NEIN NEIN NEIN!!!!!! Go out and buy the " Sacher Kochbuch" , or just use google for an Austrian or German recipe, not a fucked up american one XD Thank me later

  • Verdict?

  • I will use it for my next terrifying nazi brunch indeed

  • I love the background music he uses

  • if i had 1 nazi for every person that says ¨this will go good with my nazi brunch¨ then i would have enough for a nazi brunch

    • Nah, then I'd have enough for a glorious parade to make my neighbours jealous!

  • A Nazi speaking French? Ok?

    • Watch the movie. Then you'll hopefully understand it.

  • Bringing this to the next Charlottesville rally, the boys will love it.

  • U should make a corzone from the barebears

  • Cut vents in it next time.

  • It has to be eaten by jew to be authentic though

  • You can immediately spot the German Strudel eater: They only use their fork.

  • This is one of my favourite scenes

  • kreme de la creme, heuheuheuheuehue...

  • whoa he's making a nazi food..where ya'll sjws

  • Christoph waltz is the best actor and nobody can convince me otherwise.

  • I miss this intro

  • Aa strudle sehr gut

  • Pas si mauvais😏

  • Cigarette?

  • You are quite the talent. Your dinner parties must be amazing!

  • Are you handicapped?

  • The way she cut that strudel put it on her fork made me hard

  • ahhhhhh i was gonna request this before i saw it !! and the ratatouille and perfect sandwich

  • that scene was just so well done holy shit

  • When Nerdwriter1 makes a cooking channel.

  • you did forget that germans eat their whipped cream plain with no sugar.

  • Where's the crust at? Dissappointed

  • I would like to hear the "Morgan Freeman's" version of naration....

  • Mélanie Laurent does such a good job in this scene with her subtle, reluctant "OMFG" eyes after she takes a bite.

  • Dont copy

  • And YOU SUCK AT COOKING yes you totally suck check it online

  • He killed shoshanas family so fuck his god damn strudell to hell

  • Meet Oma, my knew grandmother

  • I once had to roll this out for baking class at school for strudel, Pain..In...Da...Effin...Arse but man was it good.
