When you need a cake in a hurry, this is an excellent emergency recipe. It tastes good eaten hot, straight from the oven, or cold.
*The streusel cake tastes delicious with many seasonal fruits. Try apricots, peaches, puréed plums or stewed apples. Canned fruit can also be used; just be sure to drain off any excess juice.
*Change the texture of the streusel mixture by replacing a quarter of the flour with an equal weight of ground hazelnuts and a good pinch of ground cinnamon.
