Cream cheese apple cake recipe

Cream cheese apple cake recipe. The smell of sweet apples and fragrant scents of cinnamon will waft throughout your house as this cream cheese apple cake bakes in the oven.

Everyone knows how brilliantly these flavours blend together to create the kitchen classic – apple pie. We want to bring a bit of a tasty twist, though. The addition of cream cheese adds a perfectly balanced tang to this dessert and gives it an extra bit of moisture for a soft, delectable mouthful every time.

Serve this cake while still warm and the cream cheese is soft and gooey, for a delicious dessert that will bring you a lot of toasty comforts. What’s more, it tastes just as good served cold with a nice cuppa!
