This easy-to-make Homemade Blackberry Toaster Strudel recipe is ready in under 30 minutes and is absolutely amazing with its light, refreshing Vanilla-Lime Glaze. They are the perfect weekend brunch pastry that will surely impress your guests!
Fresh, hot-out-of-the-oven homemade pastries are absolutely amazing. They are flaky, sweet, and light. I started experimenting with homemade breakfast pastries when I went through a period of time where I had a bunch of house guests. I really like to roll out the red carpet for house guests. I also tend to bring goodies when I’m a house guest. Hint hint. 🙂
But, seriously, what better way to wake up your friends or family than the smell of fresh baked pastries? I’m pretty sure there aren’t many other ways. Maybe a side of crisp bacon is up there at the top of the list but not much else.
As we head into fall and all the wonderful family-centric holidays, it’s always good to have a few good recipes on hand to make for guests. This Homemade Blackberry Toaster Strudel is so delicious. When I made a test batch, I didn’t want to stop at one pastry. Unfortunately, my pants said, please stop. Metaphorical pants because it is still way too hot to even consider wearing pants here.
Have you ever had anything with the blackberry-lime combo? It’s sooo good. Lime is a great companion to blackberries. I added a hint of vanilla so that the glaze had a bit of warmth to it. Over all, you are left with a light, flaky pastry that will melt in your mouth.
While I have you dreaming about breakfast pastries, check out my Strawberry Breakfast Pastries with a Rosewater Glaze. Rosewater is a lot of fun and when done right, it creates a delicate floral flavor and not a flower bouquet!
Now, save this recipe and let me know how it works out the next time you have guests…or this weekend when you make them for yourself and secretly eat more than one…or two!
- 1 package of puff pastry
- 2/3 cup blackberry jam
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp water
- 1/2 cup powdered sugar
- 2 tbsp whole milk
- 1 tsp lime juice
- 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
- Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees. Place a silpat on a cookie sheet and set aside.
- On a baking mat or cutting board, unfold each puff pastry sheet. Using the creases in the pastry, cut three long rectangles. Then cut each of those in half, making 12 pieces. Place 6 of these on the silpat about an inch apart.
- Spoon the jam onto the puff pastry in the middle of each of the squares. Leaving about a half-inch border.
- Place the remaining 6 pastry squares on top of the pastries. Using a fork, press a border all around the pastry sealing it.
- Whisk together the water and the egg to create an egg wash in a small bowl. Using a pastry brush, brush on the egg wash.
- Place the pastries in the oven for approximately 12-14 minutes until they are slightly browned.
- While the pastries are baking, whisk together the ingredients for the glaze.
- After removing the pastries from the oven, add the glaze to the pastries by either a spoon or a plastic squeeze bottle.
- Serve warm.
- These pastries are best right from the oven but you could make them the night before and heat them up in the oven for a few minutes the next morning.
