Traditional German Apple Crumble Cake

For the dough:

  • 400g wholemeal
  • 50 grams sugar
  • 2 tsp dry yeast
  • 200ml warm milk
  • 1 egg
  • 100g melted butter
  • a dash of salt

For the topping

  • 1.5kg Apple
  • sultanas

For the crumble:

  • 150g wholemeal
  • 150g chopped walnuts
  • 200 warm butter
  • a dash of cinnamon

Prepare the dough like any other yeast dough. Comment below if you are unsure how to do it and I will reply with detailed instructions. Let the dough double in size.

In the meantime, peel and slice the apples.

Grease the tray with butter and distribute the dough evenly. Add sultanas and apple slices on top. Let the dough go again while you prepare the crumble.

Combine all the crumble ingredients and distribute them evenly.

Bake at 200°C with the bottom and top heat setting.

Sprinkle some pure icing sugar on top before serving. Enjoy!
