There’s nothing scrumptious and healthy like Apple Streusel Tea Cake to have with a cup of coffee or tea.

Because, we do not want to be overweight when we come out this quarantine period. Replace unhealthy substances with healthy ones just like how I have used Buckwheat flour, rice flour, oat flour for this recipe. I have also used brown sugar to replace white sugar.

Apple Tea Cake:

Kids are at home. They keep bugging you to give them something tasty more often. This Apple Streusel Tea Cake solves that problem too. Basically, streusel interests kids. What is streusel? It’s a German pronunciation which means crumbly topping. I have mentioned the ingredients needed for the streusel below. To make this recipe a little unique, I have baked the tea cake on the stove top.

I have used Ossoro’s sweet Apple flavor for this recipe of Apple Streusel Tea Cake. This is a must use flavor for this recipe to enhance the taste. Just in case if you want to replace apples with any other fruits, Ossoro has a wide range of flavors available too. You name it and they have it! Let’s bake this beauty.
