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.

Raspberry Streusal cake Yum
  1. 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.
