and I choose to make use of the granny smith apples I have on hand!
I barely have enough of almond flakes to meet the required half cup
but it was just nice.  Instead of three individual spices, I used mixed.
(I partially lined the square pan with parchment paper for ease
of removing the cake - I cannot imagine how to get it out of
the pan without dislodging the streusel topping which was crumbly)
and I totally forgot to reduce the sugars for both the cake batter
and the topping... but I survived!
I managed to maintain the oven temperature at 310F
and even for two small pans, they were baked for a 
total of 55 mins (but I think 50 mins would have been okay),
and I did test with a toothpick after the initial 40 mins.
Square cake for own consumption, round to give away!
 Pretty good results, I might add!
The Cake Slice is baking from
"World Class Cakes" by Roger Pizey, for our new season!

That looks delicious! I love a good apple cake, especially if it has a streusel topping.

That apple streusel turned out just lovely! I don't think I could have parted with the second cake!

It looks so good. I love that you gave part of it away. That's a great way to watch how much you eat.

I was tempted to make this one, and after seeing your cake I will have to go back and bake it too as it looks so yummy.
