Krümmel-Torte

Nothing about this recipe gives me an idea of why it would be a crumb cake, but researching other recipes of the same name informed me that these proportions of ingredients leads to a crumbly mixture, not a batter.  Thank heavens!  I couldn’t imagine how to spread a layer of applesauce on batter!  The recipe that revealed this to me used apple slices and raisins instead of applesauce and I must say it would make a prettier presentation.  

Krummel

German:
Krümmel-Torte
1 £ Mehl, ¼ £ Butter, ½ £ Zucker, 2 ganze Eier, 1 ½ Päckchen Backpulver werden zusammen vermengt. Diese Masse gibt man zur Hälfte in eine zubereitete Springform, dann eine Lage Apfelmus und dann die andere Hälfte und bäckt ihn eine Stund

Google Translate:
Crumb cake
1 pound of flour, ¼ £ butter, ½ £ sugar, 2 eggs, 1 ½ tsp baking powder are mixed together. This mass is one half in a prepared springform pan, then a layer of applesauce and then the other half, and it bakes one hour,

My Interpretation:
Krümmel-Torte
Mix together 1 lb flour, 1/4 lb. butter, 1/2 lb. sugar, 2 eggs and 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder. Put half the mixture into a prepared springform pan, then a layer of applesauce, and then the other half of the mixture. Bake for one hour.
