Almond Streusel

This almond streusel recipe was inspired by my last trip to Berlin.  I stumbled across an amazing bakery called Zeit Für Brot. Alongside the array of amazing cinnamon rolls (which I ate quite a few of) was a cake with a berry filling and a traditional streusel topping.  It was great, the crunchy topping added great texture to the cake.

I've added ground almonds to this streusel recipe, but that's mainly because I consider ground nuts, especially almonds, to be one of my key ingredients for baking.

I use this almond streusel to add a crunchy topping to my Raspberry Streusel Friands, but it's also the base for my Whisky Oat Crumble which I use as the topping for my apple crumble.
