German Apple Streusel Cake

I really wanted to join in with GBBO European cake week but I didn't want to spend too long making a fancy layered torte or green princess cake. I have a load of apples that we picked from my brother in laws trees at the weekend, so I decided on a German Streusel Cake, or if you want to go all out with the German name, it's an Apple Streuselkuchen (pointed out by my German friend Carolin).

It's a lovely moist cake, with a layer of sharp apples and topped with sweet cinnamon crumble (streusel), and dusted with a little icing sugar.
