Apple Cake and Streusel Topping

What to do? With three apples on the way out in the fridge, not enough to make a pie, and a can of apple pie filling but no flaky pie dough.  The answer –  Apple cake and streusel topping. 

This isn’t a traditional recipe since  I’m using pie filling but it did come out fairly well, and with the streusel topping it’s great.

Ingredients for Apple cake and Streusel Topping

For the Cake:

  1. 2 cups all purpose flour
  2. 2 tsp baking soda
  3. 2 tsp baking powder
  4. 1 can apple pie filling
  5. 1 cup suar
  6. 1 tsp cinnamon
  7. 1/2 cup butter melted
  8. 2 eggs
  9. 2 Tbsp butter to grease pan

For Streusel Topping

  1. 8 Tbsp butter melted
  2. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  3. 1/3 cup brown sugar
  4. pinch table salt
  5. 1 Tbsp cinnamon
  6. 1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
  7. Powered sugar for topping (optional)


Directions for Apple Cake and Streusel Topping 

Prepare the topping first.  Place the sugars, cinnamon,salt and flour in a bowl and stir to combine.  Pour the melted butter in and stir with a fork until all is combined and you have small pea sized pieces throughout.  Don’t break the pieces any smaller, you want the clumps in the final product.

For the Cake:

You can make this in a mixer, but it works best with a large bowl and a large spatula.

Butter a 9 X 13 inch baking pan.

Preheat oven to 325°

In the bowl place the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon and sugar into the bowl and combine.  Add the pie filling and stir until all the flour mixture is combined, then add the melted butter and eggs and mix completely.

Pour into the baking pan and smooth out, sprinkle the streusel topping over the top covering the cake completely.

Bake for about 60 minutes or until a toothpick placed into the center comes out clean.

Remove from the oven place on a wire rack and let cool completely.  If you want it sweet sprinkle the powdered sugar over all.
