Cinnamon Apple Cake

I made a cake the other day and it lasted for less than 24 hours......it must have been good!!  I found the recipe on Pinterest.  Thought I would share the recipe and a picture of course......it was yummy!

1  3/4 cups sugar, divided
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 tsp. vanilla extract
6 ounces cream cheese, softened (about 3/4 cup)
2 large eggs
1  1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1  1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
2 tsp. ground cinnamon
3 cups chopped, peeled apple  (about 2 large)  (I used Macintosh)
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 350°
Beat 1½ 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 ¼ cup sugar and cinnamon.  Combine 2 tablespoons of cinnamon mixture and apple in a bowl, then stir apple mixture into batter.  Pour batter into a 9-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray.  Sprinkle with remaining cinnamon sugar mixture.

Bake at 350° for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until cake pulls away from the sides of pan.  Cool cake completely on a wire rack and cut using a serrated knife.  Enjoy!
