Notes

Substitutions:
  • You can use store-bought apple pie filling for this recipe.
  • Walnuts or almonds can be used in place of the pecans for the streusel.
Expert Tips:
  • This cake batter is very thick. It might be a little hard to spread.
  • You don't have to use all of the streusel on top of the cake!
  • Don't let the apple pie filling touch the sides of the pan. It will burn and cause the cake to stick!
  • Slide a knife around the edges of the cake before turning it out of the pan.
  • Some of the streusel will fall off when you turn the cake out.
