    1. For streusel topping, knead flour, sugar, softened butter and a large pinch of cinnamon into a crumbly dough; add a little more flour, if needed.
    2. Press ricotta through a sieve. Line a baking tray with baking paper or grease well with butter.
    3. Put flour, baking powder, sugar and zest in a bowl. Add sour cream, ricotta, egg, oil and milk; knead into a crumbly dough with dough hooks of an electric mixer or by hand.
    4. Place dough on a lightly floured work surface and knead into a ball; work in only a small amount of flour, or the slice will be dry.
    5. Roll dough out on the floured work surface or the baking tray. (For rolls and pastries, shape dough into a cylinder, divide into pieces and shape.)
    6. Spread a topping on the dough such as slices of apple; overlap like roof tiles.
    7. Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Spread streusel topping evenly over fruit. Bake for 15–20 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
