Apple Streusel Pound Cake

This homemade Apple Streusel Pound Cake is a tempting cake choice to take on picnics, hikes, and camping trips.

The apple comes from fresh fruit that is layered on top of the pound cake but under the streusel topping. Providing the sweet element, the apple combines with the cinnamon in the dessert rub to create a homely flavor.

Although this works with any apple the best results are from Granny Smith. It can also be made with pears if you are looking for more options.

Ingredients

Streusel Topping

1/4 cup (50g) fine sugar

1/2 cup (100g) unsalted butter

1/2 cup (50g) flour

2 teaspoons Bush Cooking Dessert Rub

Pound Cake

2 Granny Smith apples

1/2 lemon, juiced

1 teaspoon Bush Cooking Dessert Rub

4 eggs

1 cup (200g) fine sugar

1 cup (200g) butter

2 cups (200g) self rising flour

Equipment

9-inch (23cm) springform cake pan

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the camp oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). Grease and line a 9-inch (23cm) springform cake pan.

  2. Combine the sugar, butter, flour, and Bush Cooking Dessert Rub together by rubbing it between your fingertips. Set aside.

  3. Peel, core, and slice the apples. Toss the apples in the lemon juice and dessert rub. Set aside.

  4. Place the eggs and sugar in an electric mixer then beat until light and fluffy. Melt the butter and slowly pour it into the egg mixture. 

  5. Sift the flour into the egg mixture then fold in carefully until combined.

  6. Pour the cake mixture into the prepared cake pan, then carefully lay the apple slices over the top. Sprinkle with the streusel mixture.

  7. Bake for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from the springform cake pan.
