German Streusel Cake with Apricots


Hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend. We spend one day with our Friends, the other we just hung out at our little Ranch. We currently have 90 degree weather, and our Orchard is full of ripe fruits ready to be picked. Yesterday we've picked some Apricots, and made a yummy German Streusel cake (Crumb Cake) with Cream Cheese and Apricots. A childhood favorite of mine. You can substitute the Apricots with any other fruit. My favorites are, Plums, Cherries, or Blueberries.
Hope you will try it. Recipe is below pictures.







German Streusel Cake with Apricots

Dough/Topping

250g Butter
1 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
Pinch Salt
3 cups Flour
1 teaspoon Baking Powder

Cream Butter with Sugar, Vanilla Extract, Egg and Salt, add Flour with Baking Powder, until you get a smooth dough. Grease Baking Pan (I use a 9x13 inch), and use 2/3 of dough to press evenly onto Baking pan. Set aside. 

Make the Cream Cheese Filling.

24 oz Cream Cheese (3- 8oz packages)
1/2 cup Sour Cream
1 cup Sugar
1 tablespoon Vanilla Extract
1 Egg
1/2 teaspoon finely grated Lemon (optional)

Pour Cream Cheese mixture over prepared dough. Cut and Pit ca 10-12 Apricots. Put fruit over cream cheese filling. Then add remaining dough in little clumps all over the cake. Bake at 350 degrees ca 40-45 minutes. Let cool and refrigerate.

Love,

Diana
