Easy Apple Streusel Cake

    1 hour 10 minutes

    A wonderful apple pie recipe with a streusel topping. It saves the roll-out, because the dough is simply pressed into the mold.

    Makes: 1 pie

    • 4-5 large apples (about 800 g)
    • cinnamon, to taste
    • 200g butter
    • 200g sugar
    • vanilla essence
    • 1 egg
    • 500g plain flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking powder

    Preparation:20min  ›  Cook:50min  ›  Ready in:1hour10min 

    1. Peel, core and slice the apples then cook with a pinch of cinnamon in a saucepan 10 minutes, stirring occasionally and maybe add a little bit of water so they do not burn. Allow to cool.
    2. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Grease a springform tin (26 cm diameter).
    3. Cream the butter until fluffy then stir in gradually the sugar, vanilla and egg.
    4. Sift the flour with the baking powder then stir into the butter mixture until it forms a crumbly dough.
    5. Place half of the dough into the prepared springform tin. Pinch the dough firmly and spread the apple slices so that a margin of 1 cm remains free.
    6. Spread the crumble topping evenly over the filling.
    7. Bake 50 minutes in preheated oven. Cake to cool slightly and remove from the mold.

    I mixed Granny Smith and honey crisp apples did add add a couple tablespoons of brown sugar to apples while cooking but it turned out great and tasted wonderful. Made a unique presentation very pretty not a crumb was left. I’m actually helping my 2 teenage grandsons at 11pm make another they really liked it  -  25 Jan 2019  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I followed the directions, but the crumb mixture was so moist, it was more like a biscuit. I didn't want to add more flour to produce a thick, heavy blob. Whatever, I kept going. I simmered the apples for longer and added more cinnamon, cloves and butter along with water for a juicer mix. I spread the gooey crust stuff on the bottom of a buttered 9x9 ( I hate spring forms) followed with the apples then dolloped the rest of the mix on top. It baked nicely and tasted really good....just nothing crumb about it. I served it warm with a bit of ice cream. I will do this again but use cold butter and cut it into the flour mix for a crumbly outcome. Thank you for sharing!  -  22 Oct 2018  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
