Sisak Bakery Breaks Guinness World Record for Longest Strudel

The Sisak bakery and pastry shop “Mlin i pekare" successfully baked a strudel that was 1,762.45 meters long, which is almost 300 meters longer than the longest strudel in the world, reports 24 Sata on June 21, 2019.

The entire process of preparing, baking and measuring the strudel was carried out according to the strict rules of the Guinness Book of World Records. The idea for such a venture came from Auto Promet Sisak, who wanted to thank their faithful travelers with a big strudel. However, “Mlin i pekare” went a step further and used the task at hand to tackle something much bigger - a Guinness World Record. 

Namely, if they wanted to exceed the current world record, they needed to create a traditional apple strudel that was 1,479.38 meters long. Instead, this Sisak bakery successfully baked a strudel that was 1,762.45 meters long!

As the production manager Snježana Kožić said, about 1,000 kilograms of apples, 500 kilograms of T-400 flour, 200 kilograms of sugar, 200 kilograms of margarine, 50 kilograms of powdered sugar, and a considerable amount of cinnamon, lemon and salt were used for the strudel. The filling weighed about 1,200 kilograms, and the dough about 800 kilograms. Producing this monster strudel, which included its baking in a rotating oven, lasted about 300 working hours.

After the strudel was finished baking, it was sprawled out across ten long tables in six rows at the Caprag City Pool, making it the biggest attraction of the City Games.

After the assessment of independent experts at the Culinary Institute KulIn and the announcements by geodetic survey experts, to the joy of everyone involved in the project and those who had the chance to witness it, the world record has been broken! All verified information will be sent to the Guinness Office to be officially published and included in the book.

After the results were announced, “Mlin i pekare" workers sliced the strudel and offered to visitors and City Games contestants.
