Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 8-10
Don't be quick to dismiss this as an ordinary cake. One taste and you'll keep wanting more.
  • 1¾ cups sugar, divided
  • 1 stick (8 tablespoons) butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 6 ounces cream cheese, softened (about ¾ cup)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1½ teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups chopped peeled Fuji apples (about 2 large)
  • Cooking spray
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F.
  2. Beat together at medium speed of a mixer 1½ cups sugar, butter, vanilla, and cream cheese until well-blended; this will take about 4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Then add flour mixture to the creamed mixture, beating at low speed until blended.
  3. Combine the remaining ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon. Combine two tablespoons cinnamon mixture and apples in a bowl. Stir the apple mixture into batter. Pour batter into an 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle the top with remaining cinnamon mixture.
  4. Bake for 65-70 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan. Cool the cake completely on a wire rack.
