“Hi Deb I have just recently discovered your cake mixes, absolutely fantastic, first was the Ginger cake then the Toffee and now have just baked the Chocolate Fudge (waiting for it to cool) All have been really moist and I am sure the Choc/fudge will be the same. Have purchased them from Morrisons who seem to have a limited variety,will try Sainsburys as I really love carrot cake. Keep up the excellent products.”Tony Devine
No, this is not a spelling error with regard to an Apple Strudel! A Streusel is from the German verb streuen like our English word strewn. In baking, a streusel is a crumb topping baked on top of muffins or cupcakes – modern versions allow spices and chopped nuts to be included in the Streusel as we have – to create these deliciously different cakes.
