Spiced Apple Struesel Cake#BundtBakers

My hubby comes from office late in the evening and very quietly tells me, bake a cake for me with pleading eyes. I want to take it tomorrow for our department picnic. I could not refuse him, had 2 apples lying in the fruit basket, decided to bake this Spiced Apple Struesel Cake. This is my late night baking. 
This delicious apple cake is filled with a mixture of chopped apples and a sprinkle of toasted almonds and streusel. It makes a fabulous picnic cake or dessert.

It's posting day for our Event for Bundt Bakers the theme is Bundt Cakes for Picnics and our Host is Sue Lau. Thank you Sue for hosting this event.

For Cake Batter 

250 Grams All Purpose Flour
200 Grams Butter
1 Cup Caster Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla essence
1 Tablespoon Baking powder
3 Eggs
For  the Topping 

2 Medium Apples - thinly sliced
1 Tablespoon Lemon juice
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon powder
¼ Teaspoon Clove powder
¼ Teaspoon Nutmeg powder
½ Cup Toasted Almonds - chopped
For the Streusel 

50 Grams Butter - melted
100 Grams All Purpose
2/3 Cup Caster Sugar


Sieve the flour and baking powder, keep aside.
For the Streusel 
Mix butter, flour and sugar together with your hands until it forms small crumbles. Keep aside
For  the Topping
In bowl mix the sliced apple, lemon juice and spice and keep aside.

Now that the topping and streusel are ready let's preheat the oven and start making the cake batter.
Grease a 10 inch ring pan with butter well. 
In a large bowl beat the butter and sugar till light and creamy add the eggs one at a time till incorporated, and continue beating, add the essence and mix well. Now fold in the sieved flour little at a time till all is incorporated. This batter is thick so do not add any extra liquid.
To assemble the cake
Pour this batter a greased ring pan and spread it evenly with a spatula. 
Top it with apples by arranging the slices. 
Then sprinkle the chopped almonds
Then spread the struesel on top.
Bake at 180 degrees for about 55 to 60 minutes or till a skewer inserted in center comes out clean.
Cool it in the pan then un mould. 
I had to slice and pack the cake when hot,  
cause early in the morning he had to take it, so soft and moist
Packed  in a air tight box and ready to carry for the picnic
