Easy Apple Streusel Teacake
« on: April 07, 2011, 12:44:06 am »
This is a yummy variation of my Easy Apple Teacake recipe.

Easy Apple Streusel Teacake

Ingredients:

Topping:
75g plain wheat flour
40g organic raw sugar
50g butter chopped
a few drops of vanilla extract

Cake:
60g butter
200g milk
1 free-range egg
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
190g plain wheat flour
2 tsp baking powder (homemade is free from nasties)
100g organic raw sugar
pinch salt

1 large apple peeled and thinly sliced (preferably a cooking apple)
cinnamon

Method:

Preheat oven to 180 degrees (160 fan forced) and grease and flour your cake tin (I use a 20cm round tin).

Place topping ingredients in tmx bowl and combine for approximately 10-12 seconds on speed 5 until small crumbs form (watch carefully - see notes). Set crumbs aside and scrape bowl out well.

Melt butter in tmx bowl for 2 mins, 80 degrees, speed 2.

Add milk, vanilla and egg. Mix for 10 seconds on speed 4.

Add flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Mix for 10 seconds, speed 5.

Pour batter into tin and lay apple slices over the batter.

Sprinkle the apple lightly with cinnamon and then pour the crumbs evenly over the apples/batter.

Bake for 35-40 minutes.

Serve by itself, or with whipped cream and/or custard. Enjoy.

Notes:

If your crumbs are really tiny they will cook into the cake instead of holding their form and making a topping.

JD - I made 2 of these today Chelsea after a neighbour bought over a bag of Granny Smiths - one for her and one for us. Thanks for the recipe, I'll be making it again for sure.

VHJ - Made this for a school function today but was very reluctant to let it go as it looked so yummy. Will just have to make another.

Chelsea - I made another one with canned apricot pie fruit.  It was a bit moist though and the strudel topping cooked into the apricot a bit.  It still tasted lovely though.

Thanks CTG. Do you think this is more of a cake than a dessert? (I am trying to think of a dessert for tonight)

It is quite light so probably more of a cake than a dessert.  I do happen to know that it is beautiful served with custard as a dessert though.  ;D ;D

Thanks Chelsea, my parents are coming up to stay for a couple of days tomorrow so I'll make 2 milk bread loaves and this for afterwards.  This looks a lot like muffins I used to buy from my favourite bakery, they used to have the crunchy top too.  Sooo yummy.  Look forward to making it tomorrow, thank you.

Go on Jan!!! I made another one on the weekend with canned apricot pie fruit.  It was a bit moist though and the strudel topping cooked into the apricot a bit.  It still tasted lovely though.  :)
