I found this amazing recipe in an old newspaper from the 1950’s.

This first-class cake exceeded all my expectations. I would not have thought that such delicious recipes could be found in newspapers back then. In the newspapers it is called “Quark Apple Cake with Streusel”. You need a lot of ingredients to prepare it, but the work is rewarded. It’s an apple pie, but the apple flavor is barely noticeable. You have to try it!
So if you’re looking for a tasty way to rediscover an old recipe from the 1950s, watch this video!
