Apple Crumble Coffee Cake 苹果咖啡蛋糕
2 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar (I used brown sugar)
1/2 tspn baking powder
1/2 tspn baking soda
a pinch of salt
230gm cold butter, chopped
3/4 cup heavy cream
1 TB lime juice & zest
1 tspn vanilla essence
4 green apple, diced
1 tspn cinnamon powder
3 TB cornstarch
(combine all ingredients and cook till softened then set aside to leave cool)
(1) for ingredients (A), combine together flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar & salt and mix well. Then rub in butter till everything well cooperated and reserved one cup for topping later on. The best is to keep the remaining mixture refrigerated.
(4) next, spread ingredient (C) all over the top of the cake batter.
(6) finally, bake at preheated oven 175'C for about 55 minutes. The top crust should be in nice golden brown colour.
