quick apple streusel cake



Yesterday I made Gale Gand's Quick Apple Streusel Cake for a party... most of our friends were there last night and we had a good time and the food was great as usual...
I don't know what was I thinking when I put the apples without peeling them before, it wasn't until M. was cutting the cake that I realized I always peel them... the cake was good but the green showed and it looked funny (to say the least)...
I made a few variations on Gale's recipe:
  • Added 1 tsp madagascar vanilla to the mix
  • Cinnamon: 1/2 Tbsp on the mix and 1 Tbsp for the Streusel (love it spicy!)
  • Used butter for vegetable shortening (don't like that thing and avoid it when possible...)
  • Added 1/2 cup chopped pecans to the streusel
  • I doubled the recipe and it came out perfect
  • For the mix I used the Iber Gourmet or if you own a Thermomix it should be perfect
Of course I bought vanilla ice cream for accompaniment, as suggested...
Happy baking!

I'm sure it tasted great. You know the skin probably contains most of the nutrients in the apple, so you gave the party goers something healthy.
I always say a fruit crip or pie is healthy. Cause it's fruit. Right??

Right, Laura! Pie is healthy... and icecream, too!!
