  4. 200 g sugar
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 200 g sour cream
  7. a pinch of salt

For the apples:

  1. 3 apples
  2. 1 tsp lemon juice
  3. 50 g brown sugar
  4. 1 tbsp flour
  5. 1/2 tsp cinnamon

For the Streusel:

  1. 50 g softened butter

  3. 50 g brown sugar
  4. 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  5. a pinch of salt
  6. 50 g roasted and chopped hazelnuts/almonds

Peel, core, and dice apples. Toss the apples with lemon juice. Add the dry ingredients. Stir and set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. In another large bowl, beat together butter and sugar. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the flour mixture, alternating with the sour cream. Pour cake into pan ( lightly buttered before). With a spatula, smooth out the top. Arrange the apple slices on the top of the batter.

To make the streusel topping, combine all the ingredients until it forms a crumbly mixture. Sprinkle streusel evenly over the apples.

Bake in preheated oven at 180 degrees C around 40 min or until cake is golden brown. Let cool in pan 15 minutes, then turn out onto rack and let cool.
