    Top with the remaining batter, spread and then top the cake with the remaining streusel.

    Bake in the oven for 30-45 minutes until cooked. A skewer stuck into the middle of the cake should come out clean-ish. The streusel keeps things a little gooey in the middle so don’t worry if it isn’t completely clean. Leave in the tin until cool and then slice and serve.
