Ingredients
Cake:
2
cups all-purpose flour
3/4
cup butter, room temperature
1/2
cup granulated sugar
1/2
tsp baking powder
1/4
tsp salt
1
egg
1
tsp vanilla extract
Apple Filling:
5
apples, peeled and diced
1 1/2
cups unsweetened applesauce
2
tbsp granulated sugar
1
tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
1
tsp lemon zest
1/2
tsp cinnamon
Streusel Topping:
2
cups all-purpose flour
3/4
cup cold butter, cubed
3/4
cup granulated sugar
Directions
1.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter and flour a 9×13" baking dish or spray with non-stick baking spray.
2.
Mix flour, butter, sugar, egg, and vanilla together in a large bowl using an electric mixer until combined.
3.
Pat the cake dough into an even layer on the bottom of the prepared baking dish using the back of a rubber spatula or your hands. Refrigerate until apple filling is ready.
4.
In another large bowl, combine the apples, lemon juice, lemon zest, sugar, cinnamon, and applesauce. Spoon apple filling in an even layer over the cake dough.
5.
In another large bowl, cut the butter into the flour and sugar using a pastry cutter until it resembles coarse crumbs. Squeeze handfuls of streusel topping together to create larger clumps, then sprinkle the streusel over the apple filling.
6.
Bake for 45 minutes until lightly golden brown on top and the apples are soft.
7.
Cool completely, then cut into squares and serve with sweetened whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. I think this cake tastes best cold, straight from the fridge.
