This easy crumb cake has fruit tucked under the crumb topping. This Einfacher Streuselkuchen was sent in by another Gerhild! It was the first recipe sent in by another Gerhild (which is my name as well), Gerhild Naggert. It's one of those really easy German recipes that gets passed on through the generations. It's similar, but totally different than my Streuselkuchen, especially in the method. So wonderful having a variety of different German foods to present for your Kaffeeklatsch!
Gerhild N. mentions that she prefers to use the blueberries or tart cherries because the resulting cake is moister. Apples work but the cake is not as moist. Perhaps, not as moist, but delicious, nevertheless! I made the cake above using two apples. Delicious, almost cookie-like. Great with our afternoon coffee.
Don't forget to check out the other recipes sent in by the other Gerhilds in the world. There aren't many of us, but we are SPECIAL!

"Sehr Gut, Gerhild!
Your Quick Fix Soups e-book is wonderful. My Swiss wife is going to love the soups that I make for her with your recipes. She already loves my soups, but your e-book will greatly expand the variety
Thank you for making the recipes easy to follow and see with the beautiful photos. The extra tips and options that you give after each recipe are very helpful. Thanks for the printable recipe cards, too!"
