Today I want to share a recipe for a German Apple Streusel Slice. I think everyone has probably tried this dessert before. It’s one of those homely, old fashioned sweets that tends to brings back warm memories. The slice consists of three layers. The bottom layer is a shortbread style base. The next layer contains a diced apple, apple sauce and cinnamon filling. Finally, a delicious buttery, crumble layer completes the dessert.Although the slice has three layers this is a no fuss affair. As with all my favourite recipes it’s strictly a dump and bake dish. Best of all the recipe makes a large tray of Apple Streusel Slice. There will be plenty of leftovers for school lunches or morning tea the next day. The Apple Streusel Slice can be served hot or cold, making it suitable as a summer or winter dessert. My children love to have it with a thick, hot custard but I prefer to enjoy mine cold for morning tea.
Please note, the recipe is ideal for cooking in a baking tin measuring 30cm X 20cm or 12″x8″.
Please feel free to pin the recipe for later!
I have given instructions for a Thermomix but if you don’t have a Thermomix just use a food processor.So tell me readers, what old fashioned desserts do you like to return to for a lovely food memory. The other dessert I particularly associate with my childhood is Sticky Date Pudding. My recipe has a few extra tweaks such as using orange zest that makes it so distinctive. No other Sticky Date Pudding is quite the same. Please forgive the image, it was one of the first recipes I share on Gourmet Getaways.
