1 large egg, room temperature
¾ cup sour cream
1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease an 8-inch springform pan with butter or cooking spray and dust with flour; set aside.

Make cake batter. In a medium bowl, stir flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt until combined. Set aside. In a clean, medium bowl, beat the butter and chai sugar on high spead until smooth and creamy. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed, then add egg, sour cream, and vanilla; beat on medium-high speed until combined.

Spread the batter evenly into the prepared pan. Top evenly with spiced apples, then crumble the streusel topping over the apples.
