For the streusel:

  • ¾ cup flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 5 tbsp. butter
  • 2 tbsp. powdered sugar optional


  • Add flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and butter to a stand mixer bowl and mix well, then add the egg and mix until it forms a smooth dough.
  • Place dough in the fridge.
  • 3Grease a cake pan with butter. I like to use a piece of paper towel, when I don´t have soft butter on hand. This makes it easier to spread the butter. But if you have softer butter you can use a brush.
  • Add the dough to the cake pan. Spread out and pull over the edges to form a rim.
  • Place in the fridge to keep cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 325 Fahrenheit.
  • Peel and core the apples, then cut them into ½ inch slices and add them to the prepared cake pan.
  • Pour the vanilla cream pudding over the apples.
  • In the meantime, add flour, butter, and sugar to the mixing bowl and knead until crumbles form.
  • Bake for 50 minutes.
  • 12) Let the cake remain in the cake pan until completely cool.
  • If desired sprinkle with powdered sugar.
