Furthermore, I would like to give some of my suggestions for making delicious green apple streusel cake. Firstly, In this recipe I used Granny Smith green apples. Wash, peel core and then cut into thin 1/8 inch slices. Then, to toast the walnuts, place them on a baking sheet and place in a 180 degrees oven for about 8 minutes or until fragrant. Let cool and then chop them coarsely.
Then, use cold unsalted butter for a streusel topping. Finally, I used tart flavored Granny Smith apples in this recipe. But you can also use any firm textured apples to make this cake.
