All a-struesel

I'm still undecided if not having a lot to say about a cake is a good thing or a bad thing. I think, though, on this occasion it's a good thing - the Apple Struesel cake was unbelievably easy!! I had a little helper in the form of my 12-year-old niece and she did practically the whole thing, that's how simple it was.

But the taste... oh my, I went back for seconds! I'm not usually a fan of fruit on sponge as it can make the sponge soggy, but no worries with that here. Mainly because I doubt the cake will last that long!

Simple and tasty - no complaints about that!

I wonder what this one would taste like with rhubarb instead of the apple... might have to give it a try!


  1. That does look really good. I love apple cakes. I must try this soon! I can imagine it would be very good with custard :-)

  2. This looks delicious - I love streusel cakes. Love the idea of the rhubarb!

  3. Sounds like a nice idea. Haven't managed to make a streusel cake yet, but as I've got lots of apples at the moment, maybe now is the time to try.
