German Plumcake with Streusel

Sometimes you just need some comfort food! We love baked goodies with a generous Streusel topping! I have made similar cakes for many years, switching up the ingredients here and there, this time adding a bit of Marzipan to the Streusel turned out super yummy!

  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 140 g butter, soft
  • 120 ml maple syrup, room temperature
