In my last post I gave you a snippet of this Apple Streusel Cake… it is honestly the best thing I have baked to date… It’s kinda a mixture between a cake and a crumble… perfect!
What you need:
a spring form cake tin
For The Cake:
140g plain flour plus a little extra for dusting
60g softened unsalted butter
100g caster sugar
1 large egg
1/2 tsp vanilla essence
1 tsp baking powder
a tiny bit of salt
80ml whole milk
3 apples (I used bramley apples)
For The Crumble Topping:
70g plain flour
40g chilled and diced unsalted butter
1/2 tsp cinnamon
70g soft light brown sugar
Preheat your oven to 170 degrees, butter your spring form tin and dust with a little flour.
To make the crumble topping, sift the flour and cinnamon into a bowl and add the butter. With your fingers, rub the mixture together until it starts to look like crumbs. Add the sugar and mix together.
Next, to make the cake, put the butter and sugar into a bowl and cream together until quite fluffy and then add the egg and vanilla and stir until everything is well mixed together.
In another bowl, add the flour, baking powder and salt, mix and then slowly start adding it to the butter mixture, along with half of the milk. Mix it all together and then add the rest of the flour mixture and the rest of the milk. Pour this into your tin.
Peel, core and slice your apples and place them on top of your cake batter in circles. Add the crumble topping on top of the apples and put the tin in the oven for 40 mins or until when you insert a knife or skewer into the middle of the cake, it comes out clean.
Let it cool for a little while and then serve with either cream, ice cream or custard! We went for vanilla cream… Delicious!
PS. Let me know if you try it! :)
