Apple Streusel Cake (Apple Buckle)

Apple cake – because tis the season. And J can’t eat raw apples (I KNOW! What is this madness!). Also who doesn’t want a cake that you can eat for breakfast. That has browned butter in it. 

There’s not much to say about this cake – it tastes like autumn. In a cake. And is filled with delightful apples and crumbles of sugary butter. It’s easy to make, and looks pretty darn nice cut in squares or in triangles – whatever your preference.  

Hope you enjoy as much as we did!

6

7

Sprinkle evenly over the apples.

8

Bake for 40 to 50 minutes or until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

9

Allow to cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Serve warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!

Notes

To make the browned butter, heat butter in a small saucepan over medium heat, swirling occasionally so it browns evenly. We want the butter solids to brown, but not burn! So keep an eye out for a lovely browned colour and nutty smell. Stir as it bubbles and as you see some brown bits on the bottom. Remove from heat and pour into a bowl to cool slightly before use
