4) For the strudel paste, in a warm bowl, sift the flour with a pinch of salt.
5) Make a well in the centre, and pour in the lightly beaten egg and the oil, mixed with about 4 fl oz of warm water.
6) Beat till the paste seems elastic.
7) If it seems too slack, then add some flour.
8) After beating, turn out into a clean bowl and sprinkle with flour.
9) Place a lid and leave store in a warm place for about 7-10 minutes.
10) On the table, place a large floured tea towel.
11) Roll a little to flatten the paste by rolling slightly, then lay it on the floured cloth.
12) Allow to stand for a further 5 minutes, then start to pull gently from the sides.
13) When paper thin, dab the top with melted butter.
14) Scatter over the apricots and then distribute the almond filling over the top.
15) To roll up the strudel, tilt the cloth and tip it on to a well greased baking sheet.
16) Curl slightly.
17) Use melted butter to brush again and place in oven at 400°F or Mark 6, for 15-20 minutes or until nicely brown and crisp.
