Apple Cake with Streusel
By Chef Andrew Faulkner


3 Eggs
3/4 cup Sugar
1/3 cup Oil
3/4 cup Cake Meal* or well crushed unsalted saltines (*Cake meal can be found in Kosher section of grocery or specialty food store.)
2 1/2 Organic Apples (use Gala Apples) peeled and sliced
Well ground matzo.

Streusel Topping

1/2 cup Sugar
2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon


Beat the eggs with sugar and oil until the mixture is light colored. Add the cake meal and mix well. Pour half of the mixture into a greased pan 8 inch or 9 inch. Put half of the apples over the batter. Pour the rest of the batter over the apples and cover with the remaining apples.

Mix the topping in a small bowl and sprinkle over the cake. Bake in preheated 350 F. oven for about 1½ hours. The cake is done when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean or with few crumbs.

Cool ten minutes, then invert onto a plate or tray for serving. Once the cake is completely cooled, garnish with sifted powdered sugar.
