Raspberry Streusal cake

raspberry streusal cake Thought of beginning the new year with a cake recipe. I had made my first cake(it was a simple vanilla cake) at the beginning of 2008 and since then I made lots of cakes this year. I have come a long way in baking cakes and still there is lots to learn. I am trying my hand on different varieties of cakes like the cheese cake ,christmas cake,microwave cakes and this time a streusal cake.
Basically streusal cake is a cake with some kind of crumb topping. You can see more about it here.
I had some raspberries and I wanted to use it in my cake. So after searching , I found this recipe and I followed it with some minor changes. Its a low fat eggless version and now I have decided to concenterate on low fat healthy diets. So do keep visiting Creative saga for recipes with low calories.
This is how I made it.

Ingredients-
Cake
Plain flour- 1 cup
Corn flour- 1/2 cup
Baking soda- 1 tsp
Granulated sugar- 1/3 cup
Applesauce- 1/2 cup(I used home made one, refer below for the recipe)
Raspberries- 1 cup

Streusal topping-
Brown sugar- 1/2 cup
Plain flour- 1tbsp
Instant oats- 1tbsp
Rolled oats- 1tbsp
Juice concenterate- 1tbsp

Apple Sauce
Cooking apples- 3
Water- 1/2 cup
Brown sugar- 1/2 cup
Nutmeg powder- 1/2 tsp
Cinnamon powder- 1/2 tsp
Peel and cut the apple to small pieces. Put it in a pan with rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Cook for 20 minutes till the apple turns tender. Cool and mash the apples well.

Method-
Preheat oven to 180c.Spray a baking pan with nonfat cooking spray. Combine the flour, sugar, baking soda and mix well. Add applesauce and raspberries to flour mixture and mix until dry ingredients are moistened. I sprinkled a little water as the batter seemed too dry. So do it if requied. Spread this batter into the prepared pan. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar, oats and flour. Stir in juice concentrate and mix till it is crumbly. Sprinkle crumb topping over the batter and bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes, until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes and cut into pieces.

WOW! you are amazing! I love streusel kuchen , but they do contain quite a lot of batter usually. A fat free cake, have never heard of any before. From Anudivya's comment I read that you can use apple sauce instead of butter. Didn't know about it.
It looks delicious too. Looks so soft.
Hats off to you. Wonderful!
