Recipe by Elke

I use Nuttelex sunflower margarine for the base, and varying mixtures of wholemeal and plain flour – 1/2 wholemeal and 1/2 plain flour works well. Add a bit more milk if using only wholemeal flour. Replacing some of the flour with almond flour also works well (for example, 120g almond meal, 180 g plain flour, 150g butter, 120 g castor sugar for the crumbs on top gives a good mixture)

I hope it will work for you too!






    CAKE Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Grease a round cake tin.


    Peel apples, quarter and cut quarters into thick slices.


    Whisk eggs and sugar together, add margarine, flour and baking powder and milk one after the other and beat well.


    Add the mixture into the cake tin and apple pieces on top.


    STREUSEL Mix, butter, plain flour and castor sugar — – this will be quite crumbly and just hold together when pressed. Don’t overmix this or it will turn into a dough ball, which is not how you want.


    Add the Streusel on top of the cake, press down lightly.


    Bake for 50 min at 180 degrees, or until a skewer in the middle of the cake comes out clean-ish (since there are the apples).
