My Recipe Box - Cream Cheese Apple Cake

 I made this for the first time in October 2021 and instantly added it to my recipe box. I slightly modified Bunny's Warm Oven's recipe.


3 large apples peeled cored and chopped
1 Tablespoon lemon juice to toss chopped apples with
1 3/4 cup white sugar I use less
1/2 cup butter room temperature 113 grams
1- 8 ounce pkg cream cheese room temperature
2 large eggs room temperature substitute 1/4 cup applesauce for 1 egg if you wish
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour I use gluten free 
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
Cinnamon optional
Raisins optional

1/3 cup light brown sugar
3 teaspoons cinnamon 
1/2 cup chopped pecans


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place baking rack in the middle of the oven. Grease a 13x9 inch baking pan with shortening. I use parchment paper
1. Peel, core and chop 3 large firm crisp apples. Toss them in 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, set aside. I had old apples and they worked fine
2. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the 1 3/4 cup of white sugar, butter, the cream cheese and vanilla until smooth. Add the eggs and beat until well combined and creamy.
3. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder in a small bowl, stir to combine. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture, beat with an electric mixer until just combined. Add the chopped apples and fold them into the batter.
4. Pour the apple batter into the prepared 13x9 inch baking pan. Leveling the batter out as needed.
5. In a small bowl combine the light brown sugar, cinnamon and chopped pecans. Sprinkle over the apple batter in pan.
6. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 -60 minutes or until the cake tests done with a toothpick.


  1. I'm definitely going to try this! Sounds yummy!

  2. Something I never tried or heard before. I like cream cheese and apples so maybe I'll give it a try.

  3. I would add the raisin.
    Coffee is on and stay safe

  4. This sounds absolutely WONDERFUL, Jackie. I am going to try this once the weather cools a bit here.

  5. I would still have to look up ounce... I´ll never get!
    Oh. In summer we had an apple-cookie with vanilla ice-cream.
    Sweet tooth dies after that and the ice cream still blocks the freezer!
    But I love cinnamon and will keep this in mind. Not too sweet? (the bought one was a pain! The sugar crunched, brrr..)
