German Apple Cake

If a recipe has cream cheese icing I'm going to try it out - I mean how bad can something be if it has CREAM CHEESE ICING?!?!  When I saw  this recipe I was intrigued because of the sheer amount of apples.  I tried it out this weekend and it BLEW US AWAY!  Dare I say it's our favorite fall dessert?!?!  It was so easy, so moist, so tasty and just all around a great recipe to have on hand this Fall.  

What You'll Need...
3 large eggs
2 cups sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
4 cups chopped Granny Smith apples
3/4 cup chopped pecans

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
2 tablespoons (unsalted) butter, softened
2 cups powdered sugar

Here's What You'll Do...
Step 1 - In a large bowl beat the eggs, sugar, oil and vanilla.  

Step 2 - Combine the flour, cinnamon, baking soda and salt and then add to the egg/oil mixture and mix well.  Fold in the apples and nuts and pour into a greased 9x13 baking dish.  
(Note - the recipe seemed CRAZY at this point and I was a total skeptic.  It seemed thick and weird but HAVE NO FEAR!!!)

Step 3 - Bake at 350 degrees for 55 minutes (or until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).  Cool.

Step 4 - Beat together the cream cheese and butter.  Beat in the powdered sugar and spread over cooled cake.

HAPPY Thursday and happy baking!!!

  2. I can't wait to try this. All your recipes are delicious. Is there a way to add a print button to your recipes so I don't have to print out all the photos? Thanks.
