Apple Crumb Cream Cheese Coffee Cake

Enjoy a delectable cream cheese filling, cinnamon and baked apple slices throughout this buttery, lush coffee cake with the yummiest brown sugar crumb topping on top.

It has cream cheese in it!  Everyone loves cream cheese in everything, so it’s going to be addictive! Apples and cinnamon make it even better!

It’s really nice to have on hand when entertaining guests for breakfast, brunch, snack time or after dinner as dessert.

It’s such a Fall classic and one of my favorite quick breads ever, so I wanted to incorporate it into a coffee cake with the additions of cream cheese and brown sugar crumble topping.
It worked out beautifully!
