Method

45 min
 
Mix the apples, sugar, orange and lemon zest, mincemeat, cherries, spices and almonds together. Combine the ground almonds and breadcrumbs separately. Grease a heavy 37,5 x 28 cm baking tray. Overlap a sheet of phyllo and butter. Sprinkle over a third of the bread-crumb mixture. Repeat a sheet of buttered phyllo and breadcrumb mixture twice more. Top with the final sheet of buttered phyllo. Spoon the apple filling lengthways across the centre out 9 cm wide and 7,5cm from the edges of the baking sheet. Bring one edge of the pastry lengthways over the filling and cover with the other. Turn over so the join is underneath. Pinch the ends together gently and tuck under the roll which should be about 35 cm long. Brush well with butter and bake in the centre of the oven for 40-45 minutes until golden brown. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool for 15 minutes. Dust well with icing sugar and serve in slices with ice cream or whipped cream. Serves: 8 Preparation time: 1 hour Cooking time: 45 minutes Oven temperature: 190 ºC
