This is my favorite one yet. Yup. I've made a bunch of these Amish bread..er cakes, and this one is my favorite.
I couldn't stop myself from eating it. Thank goodness I'm not keeping count of the calories on these things! It doesn't count then, right?
I wasn't the best at measuring the cinnamon on this. Just add to your taste. I also don't remember if I used one apple or 2. Just eyeball what looks good. That's one thing I've enjoyed about these amish creations. The measurements don't have to be precise. I suppose it would be wise to have the correct amount of baking soda and flour and stuff but the "additions", I've basically just "winged it". They've turned out pretty well. :-)
I use 2 - 8 x 8 pans and I've found that the breads and cakes cook better that way but you are welcome to use a 9 x 13 pan, a bundt pan or regular loaf pans.

Apple Cinnamon Streusel Amish Cake Recipe
About 1 cup starter
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup applesauce
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 - 2 apples, diced
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 cups flour
1 large box vanilla pudding
1 stick of butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon (not sure how much I used)
1 cup chopped pecans
Mix butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon until crumbly. Add pecans and mix.
Spray 2 - 8 x 8 pans with cooking spray. Mix starter and everything else together until combined. Pour half the batter on the bottom of the 2 pans. Sprinkle half of the streusel topping over the cake. Top with remaining cake. Then sprinkle another layer of streusel topping on the top. Bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.
