- To the remaining streusel mix add the almonds, mixed spice and cinnamon, mix until well combined.
- Spoon the filling evenly over the base. Sprinkle the streusel mix over the filling.
- Bake for 35-40 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool in the tin on a wire rack. Once cool cut into slices.
