Autumn Apple Cake
Rating (0 Rated)
No Oktoberfest celebration would be complete without dessert. While an apple strudel would be classic, we like the ease and charm of an old-fashioned cake. This recipe is pretty simple but will make you look like a baking rock star!
serves 6-8

Ingredients

1¾ cups sugar, divided

¾ cup (6 ounces) block-style Neufchatel cheese, softened

½ cup butter or stick margarine, softened

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 large eggs

1½ cups all-purpose flour

1½ teaspoons baking powder

¼ teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

Cooking spray

3 cups chopped peeled apple (about 2 large) – We like Ginger Gold, Honeycrisp, or Sweetango, but most any apple will work!

Whipped cream or ice cream to serve

Special equipment – 8-inch springform pan*.

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

2. Beat 1½ cups sugar, cream cheese, butter, and vanilla at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 4 minutes). Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition; set aside.

3. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture, and beat at low speed until blended. Combine ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon. Combine 2 tablespoons of the cinnamon mixture and apple in a bowl; stir apple mixture into batter. Pour batter into an 8-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon mixture.

4. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake pulls away from the sides of pan. Cool cake completely on a wire rack, and cut using a serrated knife. Serve topped with whipped cream or ice cream.

* Note: If you make this cake in a 9-inch square cake pan or a 9-inch spring form pan, reduce the baking time by 
5 minutes.
