Bavarian Apple Oatmeal Streusel Cheesecake Recipe

 

Do you like starting your day with something amazingly delicious? Then you need this Bavarian apple oatmeal streusel cheesecake recipe in your life because this dessert is the best of cheesecake and apple pie combined.

 

We all know apple pie is an autumn must-have dessert and we also know how addicted I am to cheesecakes. By the end of this post, you’ll learn how to combine these two recipes, because you need to be addicted to cheesecakes too so we can be best friends.

 

After all, why would you have it for dessert when you can treat it like an entire meal?

 

My husband’s favorite pie is apple pie but he doesn’t care much for cheesecakes. One bite of this goodness with oatmeal cookies for a crust and he was sold. In fact, we ate the entire cake in one day. There was nothing left to start our next morning with and it kind of set the (sad) tone for the rest of the day.

 

With this in mind, you might need to make two batches so you have some for the next morning. There’s nothing better to go with your first hot cup of joe than this Bavarian apple pie cheesecake. Trust me on this.

 

Don’t forget to let me know how much you loved it, so we can hang out 😉

ESSENTIALS

for Bavarian Apple Oatmeal Streusel Cheesecake

  • The original German Brandt Hobbits Oatmeal Cookies is quite pricey and our local stores don’t carry it. Since we simplify recipes here at All that’s Jas to help you experience all kinds of foods, we used what we could find locally, for a fraction of the cost. $0.99 for a large package of Lil’ Dutch Oatmeal Cookies. Can’t beat that.
  • A stand mixer is a hands-free time-saver. You can enjoy a glass of wine while it does its job. 😉
  • Stocking my kitchen with different springform pan sizes literally saved me from numerous cake disasters. I still make a wrong call on occasion and end up having an extra thin cake, but it could be much worse.
  • Do you like digging your fingers into butter? Neither do I. But I do like gadgets (like a lot!) and used this pastry blender to crumble butter for streusel topping.
  • You know how you get more excited about a simple gift that is packaged nicely than the expensive one that comes shipped in a card box (well…initially at least, ha!). Serve this cake on a nice cake stand for that wow factor, although its taste alone will get you enough rave reviews. A dinner plate is fine too.

 

Delicious cinnamon apple oatmeal cheesecake is often on the table for breakfast in Bavaria.

DIRECTIONS:

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 350F.

    Jas, this looks absolutely delicious & I pinned. Funny about y’all eating it in one sitting! That’s probably what we would do too. I see you’re using Honey Crisps. They are not only delicious by themselves, they seem to be the cooking apple of choice. Wish I had a slice right now!

    This little lovely screams fall and I can see why it only lasted a day. The Mr probably won’t eat it and that means you have to come over and so I don’t eat the whole thing by myself. Thank you for sharing with us this week at Celebrate Your Story, and I hope your week is going great.
