Apple Coffee Cake with Cream cheese filling


I still had a few apples remaining from our recent apple picking trip and I had to cook them before they went bad. After a lot of web surfing and pinteresting, I came across this easy pick. I had all the ingredients at home which worked out to my favour. The aroma filled up every corner of our condo – like for real!
The smell of cinnamon baking with butter brought my husband into the kitchen repeatedly to see if the cake was ready!
The cake tasted just as delicious as it smelt! Crunchy on the outside but soft on the inside…literally melts in your mouth! Do I even need to mention the cream cheese part?! I’ll let you find out for yourself. I’ll only say this much… It gave me the shivers! Ah so good! YUM
