How to make apple streusel torte

Soft, moist, and packed with juicy apples along with the added crunch of the streusel topping. The lemon zest is absolutely a must, since it adds a subtle yet wonderful flavour to the torte. Best served with a dollop of vanilla ice-cream.

  1. Preheat oven to 190C.
  2. Melt butter. Pour 6 tbsp of melted butter into a small bowl, and set aside. Add apples and remaining butter to a pan, and cook on low heat until the apples are soft and tender.
  3. In a small bowl, stir flour, baking powder and salt. In a large bowl, beat eggs and egg yolk until blended. Add in the 6 tbsp of melted butter, vanilla, sugar and lemon. Stir in flour mixture and apples. Spoon into a round cake pan.
  4. For the streusel topping, just mix everything with your fingers until it resembles coarse breadcrumbs. Scatter generously on top of the cake mixture. It should cover the whole cake.
  5. Bake at 190C for 30-35mins.
