Apple and Cinnamon Bun lovers — this is seriously the most yummy version of this cake of all. Apples, cinnamon and cake paired with cream cheese and caramel topping — so totally “beyond the yum”! We love these cinnamon bun cakes so much that we experiment with variations of them to our own delight! This one is the best by far that will wow your family and guests.
My original recipe is here so just add your apples or other goodies, cream cheese icing and you’ve got it!
If you create the apple version as above, you will need 4 chopped apples ( I use Granny Smith) as pictured to add to your batter. I toss my apples in a 1/2 teaspoon of lemon juice, pinch of cinnamon and nutmeg before adding to batter.
Cream Cheese Icing:
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1/2 pound cream cheese, room temperature
- 2 cups powered sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- [I double my recipe for larger cakes!!!]
Mix all ingredients together until smooth. Smooth onto cake. Drizzle with Caramel Icing
