At a recent Anatolia community potluck, a participant, Ute baked this delicious Crumbcake. The original recipe is in German from the Dr. Oetker Baking Book.
Everyone enjoyed this cake which is very much like Apple Pie, and there were no leftovers. Ute kindly shared the recipe with me. The original recipe is in German. So I have published the German recipe as well for all those who do know German.
For those who do not, this may be a good exercise in learning German by comparing the 2 versions. I find that I have already learned a few words just from this recipe alone.
you can find Dr Oetker vanilla sugar & baking powder at some stores (CostPlus is a good source)
