Apple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Coffee Cake


I made this coffee cake for Christmas morning breakfast (hence the lack of prep photos). Cream cheese and apples? Sign me up. The bake time is a little lengthy, but I thought it was well worth it. This makes plenty and would be perfect for company!

I used half butter, half cinnamon sugar spread. If you don’t have cinnamon sugar spread available, just use butter in its place. You can never go wrong with more butter.

Apple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Bake: 350 degrees for 55 minutes

Cool: 5 minutes

Yield: 12 servings
4 cups apples, peeled & thinly sliced
2 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
1/4 cup butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup Land O’Lakes Cinnamon Sugar Butter Spread
12 ounces cream cheese (low fat works), at room temperature
1 cup granulated white sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup milk (nonfat works)

1/2 cup granulated white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 Tablespoons flour
Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 13x9-inch pan.

Place apple slices in bowl and drizzle lemon juice on top. Toss to coat. Set aside.

In a medium bowl, combine butter and cream cheese; add in sugar, and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in extract.

Sift dry ingredients into a separate bowl (flour, baking powder, soda & salt)

Add flour mixture to creamed mixture a little at a time, alternately with the milk, beginning and ending with the flour mixture; mix well after each addition.

Pour batter into prepared baking pan.

Combine topping ingredients in a small bowl. Sprinkle the topping over the apple slices and toss lightly to coat well. Arrange the apple slices evenly on top of the batter in the pan.

Bake 50 to 60 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
