A little secret about German streusel cakes... some of the best ones have no cake in the recipe at all, only streusel.
A few months ago, I discovered this when I was doing research to create this delicious elderberry marzipan streusel cake.
This quince chocolate streusel version is beautiful German style addition for your holiday table uses fresh quince, a fragrant winter fruit.
There is no cake base in this recipe. Fresh quince are poached, then pressed into a homemade chocolate streusel mix, covered over with more streusel and then baked. As a final touch in decoration and flavor, the cakes is then drizzled with semi sweet melted chocolate.
The last step is optional of course, but only a Scrooge does not like chocolate drizzled on their streusel cake.
