Guest Post Recipe: Cinnamon Apple Cake

This is a guest post recipe from a blogger friend of mine, Alicia over at Getting Green with Baby!
I found this recipe online awhile ago and accidentally
tweaked it a bit, but that’s ok. It’s still delicious! This cake is good any
time of day, but would be a nice breakfast treat most of all. Enjoy!
cinnamon apple cake

1 ¾ Cup sugar (divided)

1 stick butter or margarine (1/2 Cup)

1 teaspoon vanilla

6 ounces softened cream cheese (about ¾ Cup)

2 large eggs

1 ½ Cups flour

1 ½ teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

3 Cups of apple (Between 2 and 4, depending on what kind you
get, peeled and cubed. I like to do this ahead of time and set the bowl of
apple cubes in the fridge while I get everything else ready.)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Beat 1 ½ Cups sugar, butter, vanilla, and cream cheese on
medium setting until well blended. (Original recipe calls for about 4 minutes.)
Add each egg one at a time and beat well after each.
In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.
Using a low speed on your mixers, add this mixture to the cream mixture slowly
until everything is blended together well.
In a small bowl, add ¼ Cup of sugar and cinnamon together.
Take out your bowl of cut apples and sprinkle the cinnamon sugar mixture over
them, making sure to coat them well. (I like using my hands, but it’s up to
you. 😉 )
Here’s the part that’s a bit tricky. The original recipe
calls for an 8 inch springform pan. However, I use a 9 inch round cake pan and
it still fluffs well over the top after it’s cooked. This is good, but you have
to take extra care to make sure the inside is done. I might suggest splitting
the batter and putting it in two round cake pans instead of one. Whatever you
decide, be sure to spray your pan(s) before pouring the batter in.
Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the cake
pulls away from the side of the pan. (If I remember right, I split mine and
started checking on them around 40 minutes just to be safe.) It’s suggested to
let your cakes completely cool on a wire rack. That’s up to you, of course. I
find it to be a pita to get these out of the pans to cool on the rack without
destroying the cake in the process.

This cinnamon apple cake sounds delicious. I just love cinnamon apples. I am going to have to try this recipe. We are having much cooler days and for some reason when it is cool outside I love to bake. Thank you for sharing

Mmm! I love all kinds of cake, especially apple! We have tons of apples in the fridge that need to be used up, so this recipe would be perfect! I better check if I have the proper pan for this! I can't wait to try it! I love finding new recipes-thank you for sharing! :)
