This cream cheese apple cake deserves a spot on your holiday table. Although it probably won't take long to disappear!

Crisp apples bake to soft, sugary perfection in this delicious apple cake recipe. Pillowy layers of vanilla spice cake pair beautifully with a ripple of sweet cream cheese. This is one of those cake recipes that becomes a classic the moment that you make it!

We love serving this easy cake recipe with a big mug of coffee or a steaming cup of tea. But if you're really feeling indulgent, it would probably taste pretty great with a small glass of frosty eggnog.
