To make the streusel topping in a separate bowl, mix all-purpose flour (5 tbsp/40 g) and almond flour. Add icing (powdered) sugar and chilled semi-salted (or salted) butter cut into pieces and make the crumbly dough with your hands. It has to look like wet sand.
Butter and flour a silicone loaf pan or line a nonstick loaf pan with parchment paper. Pour the cake batter into the pan, sprinkle the streusel on top, and bake for 90 minutes. The cake is ready when a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
