1 ¾ cups of sugar divided

½ cup of butter softened

1 teaspoon of vanilla extract

170 grams of full fat cream cheese

2 large eggs

1 ½ cups of plain flour

1 ½ teaspoon of baking powder

¼ teaspoon of salt

2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon

2 large Granny Smith apples peeled and chopped

Cooking spray





Preheat oven to 175 degrees

Beat 1 1/2 cups sugar, butter, vanilla, and cream cheese at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended (about 4 minutes). Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture, beating at low speed until blended.

Combine 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Combine 2 tablespoons cinnamon mixture and apple in a bowl, and stir apple mixture into batter. Pour batter into an 8-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray, and sprinkle with remaining cinnamon mixture.

Bake at 175 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan. Cool the cake completely on a wire rack, and cut using a serrated knife.
