German Apple Cake with Streusel

German Apple Cake with Streusel
This German Apple Cake with Streusel Topping [Apfelkuchen mit Streusel] is one of my favorite traditional German desserts that I know you are going to love too! The tender, juicy apple filling is topped with a sweet, crunchy streusel on a buttery shortbread crust.

How to cook:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9x13" baking dish or spray with non-stick baking spray.
  2. Mix flour, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until combined.
  3. Pat the cake dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish using the back of a rubber spatula or your hands. Refrigerate until apple filling is ready.
  4. In another large bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, cinnamon, and applesauce. Spoon apple filling in an even layer over the cake dough.
  5. In another large bowl, cut the butter into the flour and sugar using a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Squeeze handfuls of streusel topping together to create larger clumps, then sprinkle the streusel over the apple filling.
  6. Bake for 45 minutes until lightly golden brown on top and the apples are soft.
  7. Cool completely, then cut into squares and serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. I think this cake tastes best cold, straight from the fridge.

Number of ingredients: 12
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 slightly beaten egg
  • 4 med apples- peeled, cored and sliced (4 cups)
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup unbleached flour
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • If Desired:
  • 1 cup sifted powdered sugar
  • few tsp milk
How to cook:
  1. Preheat oven 350 F
  2. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking pan
  3. Prepare the Apples:
  4. -In a large bowl, mix the 1/2 cup sugar, 1/4 cup flour and the cinnamon.
  5. Add the Apples, toss to combine thoroughly . Set aside while you make the crust.
  6. Prepare the Crust:
  7. -In medium bowl stir together 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, and baking powder.
  8. Cut in butter with a pastry cutter, until looks like wet sand.
  9. Stir in beaten egg with fork.
  10. (note, you can also do this with a Food Processor... just don't over process it! Pulse till you have sand, then a few more pulses after adding the egg)
  11. Dump about 2/3 of the dough into the baking pan. Press evenly and firmly into pan.
  12. Lay the apple slices over the crust. Spend a few minutes, lay to them out neatly. I make long rows down the length of the pan... keeps it looking nice, and makes slicing a lot easier.
  13. (Sprinkle any remaining flour/sugar/cinnamon stuff from the bowl over the apples)
  14. Take the other 1/3 of the dough and crumble it over the apples. I grab it in my fist and sprinkle it through my fingers, making small and big lumps evenly over the apples. This makes the Streusel.
  15. Bake 45 minutes.. until beginning to brown
  16. Cool on rack for 1 hour.
  17. Now you get to choose:
  18. You can sprinkle powdered sugar over the cake and serve it...
  19. Or
  20. You can make a thick glaze by combining the powdered sugar and a few spoonfuls of milk... make sure it's not too thin... less milk is better...pour the glaze over the cake, let sit a bit, cut and serve
  21. Or
  22. You can eat it plain.
  23. No matter which you choose, it will be delicious! Top it with whipped cream and it's bliss.

Yields: 10 servings
Cuisine: American,Germany
Number of ingredients: 11
  • 4 Granny Smith or Cox apples, (peeled, cored and diced)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice,
  • 1 cup light brown or white sugar ((set aside 2 tablespoons from the 1 cup))
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pecans or almonds ((or your nut of choice))
  • 3/4 cup or 12 tbsp unsalted butter, (softened to room temperature plus extra for greasing)
  • 3 eggs, (room temperature)
  • 1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1½ tsp ground cinnamon ((may replace 1/2 tsp with ground nutmeg for stronger spice flavor))
  • ½ tsp salt
How to cook:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350F. Grease the bottom and side of a 9-inch round springform pan (preferably light-colored).
  2. Drizzle the lemon juice over the chopped apples. Stir to ensure everything is coated with lemon juice.
  3. In another bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon (and ground nutmeg, if using) plus salt.
  4. Remove 2 tablespoons from the cup of brown sugar and mix with the chopped nuts. Set aside as topping.
  5. With an electric mixer, beat the remaining sugar with the butter until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the flour and continue to mix just until combined. Do not overmix. Batter would be thick.
  6. Fold in the apples and any remaining juice into the batter ensuring the apples are well distributed. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan. Use a spatula to even the surface.
  7. Sprinkle all over with the sugar and nut mixture on top.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 45-50 minutes or until the top is nicely browned and firm (springs back when pressed slightly). You may also use a cake tester and insert it in the middle of the cake and when it comes out clean then the cake is done.
  9. Allow to cool in the springform pan for 10 minutes then transfer onto a wire rack to cool completely. Make sure to cool completely before slicing. This can be made a day ahead.
