Apple Cinnamon Streusels

We were given lots of veggies and apples last Easter by my sister in law who had a nice farm with her partner in Stanthorpe.  My husband would usually bake his yummiest apple pie this Autumn just like what he has been doing in the past but since he is so busy preparing for his talk next week in 4 different places in Southwest QLD, I am the one in charge of the apples this time. 

I decided to try making streusels using the apples.  This is an easy to do recipe and the taste would be like the ones that you buy from your favorite bakeshop or maybe even better.  Do you ever wonder how those toppings are made?  If you have had streusels before, you would definitely know that this yummy streusel toppings are just crumbed butter, sugar and flour.  Usually nutmeg or cinnamon is also added to it.  With this recipe though I chose to use cinnamon as nutmeg is too strong for my palate.  Streusel has its origin in Germany though sometimes some would refer it to Danish or Swedish.

This is the first of the apple series that I would be doing so have fun cooking and baking!

180 g butter, softened
3/4 c caster sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla
3 medium sized granny smith apples, peeled and diced
1 1/2 plain flour, sifted

1/4 c brown sugar
1/4 c plain flour
1 tsp cinnamon
30 g butter, softened

Sift flour, baking powder and cinnamon in a smaller bowl.  Set aside.

Cream butter and sugar until creamy in a bigger bowl.

Add in eggs one at a time while mixing.

Fold in the sifted dry ingredients little by little into the butter and sugar mixture using a big metal spoon.

Pour the mixture onto a baking paper lined pan.
Top with apples.

For the toppings, mix together all the ingredients using your hands until it resembles a crumble mixture.  Put this streusel mixture onto the top of the apples.

Bake for 50 minutes in a 180C preheated oven.
