Justin Griffin's Apple Nut Cinnamon Streusel Cake

Second-place youth winner

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
2 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sunflower seeds, toasted
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cups apples, peeled and chopped

1/4 cup margarine, softened
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 13-by-9-inch baking pan.

Beat eggs, sugar and sour cream in large bowl. Combine dry ingredients and apples and add to sugar mixture. Mix well. Pour batter into pan.

Combine margarine and brown sugar in bowl and mix well. Add flour and cinnamon, stir in sunflower seeds. Sprinkle over batter. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Serve warm with ice cream

Note: There really are no nuts in this recipe. "I love sunflower seeds," said Justin Griffin, creator of this cake. "I pretend they are nuts and they're good for you."
