Although slightly put off by the spelling error, which created a lot of schoolboy-like hilarity in the household, I made this to the recipe today, other than using a slightly smaller cake tin with the accompanying increase in cooking time. Very easy to make and very nice, not being too sweet. The streusal topping provided a few bursts of sweetness, which was lovely. I'll make this again and have put it in my favourites folder! Thanks for posting this recipe, Caz.

Apologies for such a late reply! I've not been on here for a long time and only recently back on. I never was a good speller! Unfortunately, I can't seem to edit it! I'm glad you weren't too put off though and more importantly enjoyed it! Thank you so much for your rating and lovely comment :)
