Apple Streusel Cake


1 c Brown Sugar
1 c Chopped Apples (I used about 1 1/2)
1 c Sliced or Chopped Nuts (I used walnuts)
1/4 c All Purpose Flour or Spelt Flour, or you could also use a Pastry Flour
1t Ground Cinnamon
3 T Earth Balance Soy Butter *

2 c All Purpose Flour
1 t Baking Powder
1 t Baking Soda
1/2 c Earth Balance Soy Garden *
1/2 c Sugar
6 T Water or Soymilk
1 t Vanilla Extract
1/3 c Orange Juice

1/2 c Confectioners' Sugar (powdered)
2 1/2 t Orange Juice

Preheat Oven to 350°F. Spray tube pan well with Pam.
In a medium bowl mix together the streusel ingredients, set aside. 
In a separate bowl mix together the dry ingredients for the cake, again set aside.
 In a large bowl cream together soy butter & sugar, until fluffy.
 Add the egg replacer & water, beating well. 
Add vanilla.
Set mixer to low & alternately beat in the flour mixture & orange juice, starting & ending with the dry ingredients.
Spoon half of the batter into the pan & sprinkle with half of the streusel. Spoon remaining batter over the streusel, spreading to make an even layer. Swirl  with a kmife to make a marble pattern. 
Bake for 15 minutes. Remove cake from oven; sprinkle top with remaining streusel & return to oven. Bake until toothpick comes out clean, about 30-35 minutes. 
Transfer to a rack; cool completely.
Combine confectioners' sugar & orange juice to make glaze. Mix well
Turn cake out onto serving plate, streusel side up and drizzle glaze over the top. 
Serve & Enjoy.

My family has decided that they like this streusel cake better than the Almond Orange streusel cake. I still like the Almond Orange best , which is saying a lot on my part as apple pie-dutch crumb & apple cake are two of my favorite desserts. Usually for my birthday I request a dutch crumb apple pie.

*These items can also be purchased at your local health food stores.

I hope you all enjoy!
