What Is A Streusel

Strudel is of course a type of layered pastry that comes from Austria. Such as the Apple Streusel.

But in Germany, streusel is a crumb topping added to or sprinkled liberally over muffins, cupcakes, pies, and cakes, and in particular, coffeecakes.

The word itself in German means to “scatter” or “sprinkle” or more literally “strewn.”

A classic streusel is a mixture of flour, sugar, soft butter and if the recipe calls for it, a little cinnamon.
