Number of serving: 9

a) Filling:

3 large apples, approximately 800g

50 g butter

3/4 cup sugar

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons plain flour

3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon

b) Crust:

2 cups plain flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

100 g butter, softened

3/4 cup sugar

1 egg

c) Streusel:

1/2 cup sugar

2/3 cup + 2 tbsp plain flour

1/8 teaspoon salt

100 g chilled butter, diced


  • Preheat oven to 175°C. Peel, core, and chop the apples in 1/2-inch cubes. Set aside in a bowl. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add the apples and sauté for about 8 minutes until the apples are semi-soft.
  • Add sugar, lemon juice, flour, and cinnamon to the apples and stir to combine. Cook until mixture begins to bubble, then turn heat to low and cook for another 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Allow filling to cool.
  • Line a 9 by 9 inch pan with aluminum foil, leaving enough to hang over the edge and act as handles to remove bars after baking. Grease foil.
  • Whisk flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl and set aside. In a stand mixer, cream butter and sugar together on medium speed for several minutes until light and fluffy.
  • Add egg and mix to combine. Add flour mixture and mix to combine. Pour the dough into the prepared pan and gently press into the bottom of the pan and about 1/4 up the sides, making sure it is level. Set pan aside while you make the streusel.
  • In a stand mixer, combine sugar, flour, and salt and mix to combine. Add butter and mix until crumbly and the butter pieces are very small. Spread cooled apple filling evenly over the crust, leaving about 3/4? between the pan sides and the filling.
  • Sprinkle the streusel evenly over the filling. Bake for about 35 minutes until the top layer is golden. Cool completely on wire rack before removing. Cut into bars.
