1/2 vial of Bittermandel flavoring (this is a potent flavoring from Germany; substitute 2 tsp. almond flavoring)
2 tsp. Baking Powder
2.5 Granny Smith apples – peeled and cut into chunks (less than inch cubed)
Cream butter and sugar in one bowl, and whisk dry ingredients together in a separate bowl. Then add the dry ingredients, flavoring, and eggs to butter and sugar and mix all together. Add the apples to the dough; it will seem that there is barely enough dough to cover the apples. Smooth into a greased 9 x 12 pan, and add streussel on top.
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup flour
3 Tbsp butter
Mix together with mixer first and then kneed with your hands ~ you may need to add more butter or flour to get the right consistency to form the streussel. Clump with hands and strew onto the cake, leaving small clumps.
Bake about 45 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool before serving.
