Hi, I’m back with another fabulous recipe from our Bake Along group. For last week, Subhashini chose an Almond Streusel Cake adapted from one of Martha Stewart’s recipes. Wikipedia describes Streusel as “a crumbly topping of flour, butter, and sugar that is baked on top of muffins, breads, pies and cakes“. It is a wonderful addition to cakes and takes the taste and texture to a whole new level.
Although Subhashini has made the streusel with just almonds, I used a mix of Walnuts, Almonds and Pistachios. Walnuts are my most favourite ever, I can eat them all day 😀 So i had to include them..
The cake is baked in a Bundt pan and layered with the Streusel in between and at the top (which will be the finished cake’s bottom). If you are confused with this description please head on over to Fondbites website for the step by step recipe with pics..
You can use the glaze for added flavor. I decided to skip it, because i really loved the taste of the streusel and wanted to have the cake as is. By the looks of it, I think I may end up using a lot of this Streusel in the future!! It’s so crunchy and perfect!
