  1. Melt butter in a small pan and toast bread crumbs until they are golden.

I don't often make strudels, but pair that with a plum & hazelnut combo & I figured, rightly so, that we'd have a wonderful tasting dessert! Absolutely wonderful, & I did follow the recipe right on down, except that I served it with a scoop of frozen vanilla yogurt that was softened! Thanks for this great treat!
