Here is a traditional German Apple Streusel Cake recipe. It’s a buttery vanilla cake with a layer of apple streusel in the middle, topped with more crunchy cinnamon streusel. What is streusel you ask? It’s a mix of brown sugar, cinnamon, butter, flour and ground pecan or walnuts. This recipe has several steps so it can be time-consuming. Once you sit down with a tea or coffee and enjoy a slice of your majestic creation it’s all worth it. It’s a great choice to impress others for afternoon tea.
