For my aunt's birthday, I made her an apple streusel cake. The cake has a rich vanilla cake layer on the bottom, apples in the middle, and a toasty, buttery streusel topping. It's a easy cake that you can make in one bowl; no separating eggs or anything too complicated. This would be perfect served warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

For the cake:

2 3/4 cup flour
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
3 eggs
1 stick butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla extract
4 cups sliced apples

For the streusel topping:

1 cup flour
4 Tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter, softened

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. Add the milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla and beat with an electric mixer until just thoroughly combined. Pour into a greased round cake pan. Arrange the apple slices on top of the cake batter.

To make the streusel topping, combine the flour, sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a small mixing bowl. Add the softened butter and mix until crumbly. I like to use my fingers to work the butter into the flour mixture. Sprinkle the streusel evenly on top of the apples.

Bake the cake for 45-55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out cleanly. You can also tell that the cake is ready by gently poking the center of the cake. It should feel springy.

Enjoy this classical apple streusel cake!
