I rated this 3 stars because it was mediocre. I dont know about the person who reviewed this recipe as "wonderfully light" because mine turned out heavy as a brick. And I am a pretty experienced baker, and bake bread frequently, so I am quite sure I didnt make a mistake. The topping was fine and tasty, but the taste of the cake was very bland and floury, as if there is just too much flour in the recipe. If I were to make this again, I would probably cut the extra 1/4 cup of flour at least. I was amazed that this turned out so tasteless because I even added some butter flavor to the dough because I had a feeling it might need some punch to it. My guy is a big eater and easy to please, and he said it was good, but he also said he would only need one piece because it was so filling. I would say it was like a apple cinnamon topped ciabatta/bagel bread...it had huge holes in it from the yeast so I know it raised enough. I guess if you are someone who likes dense, chewy breads, you might like this...but I would recommend that you double the streusel and maybe add a layer between two halves of dough, because you will find yourself wanting to eat the top and leave the bottom...lol!
A wonderfully light crumb cake with a very delicate cinnamon apple flavour. I'd not tried yeast crumb cake before, and I'm very glad I did! I'm with Lisa, I'm doubling the crumb topping next time and adding a middle layer! Thanks, Kit! Tagged for 1-2-3 Hits.
