Ingredients

  • Streusel:
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoons sliced almonds
  • Cake:
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoons amaretto (almond-flavored liqueur)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 1/2 cups thinly sliced peeled Braeburn apple (about 3/4 pound)

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. To prepare streusel, combine first 3 ingredients in a medium bowl; cut in 1 tablespoon butter with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Stir in almonds.
  3. To prepare cake, beat granulated sugar, cream cheese, and 1/4 cup butter in a large bowl with a mixer at medium speed until smooth. Add amaretto, extracts, and egg, beating well.
  4. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Add flour mixture to egg mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture.
  5. Pour batter into a 9-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray; sharply tap pan once on counter to remove air bubbles. Arrange apple slices over batter; sprinkle with streusel.
  6. Bake at 350° for 45 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes on a wire rack; remove from pan. Cool completely on wire rack. Cut into wedges.
