What Bracha do you make on Apple Strudel?

Bracha Rishona
Mezonos
Bracha Acharona
Al HamichyaBorei Nefashos

Bracha Info

As with all cakes, the dough is considered the Ikkur (primary ingredient) and only Mezonos is necessary (Mishnah Berurah 212:1), even if there is less dough than apple, and even if the cake is eaten mainly because of the apple. To say an Al Hamichya one must eat a K'zayis of cake within a Kdei Achilas Pras (2-9 minutes). Otherwise, one says a Borei Nefashos. On the other hand, if there is merely a thin strip of dough, which is intended just to help you handle all the apple, the dough becomes Taffel (subordinate) to the apple and only Haetz need be said.
