Cream Cheese Filling

  • 8 oz Cream Cheese Room Temp

  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar

Apple Bread

  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 3/4 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 small fuji apples peeled, cored and diced small(about 1 cup)


  • Preheat Oven to 350 degrees and spray 9x5 loaf pan with baker's Joy
  • In a small bowl blend together all of the ingredients to the cream cheese filling and set aside
  • In a large bowl sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda,cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar and salt
  • Add water , oil and eggs to the flour mixture and mix well
  • Fold in diced apples
  • Pour half the apple bread mixture into prepared pan, making sure the bottom is completely covered
  • Carefully spread the cream cheese mixture on top of the apple bread
  • Spread the remaining apple bread mixture on top of the cream cheese making sure the cream cheese is completely covered
  • Bake in a preheated oven for 60-70 minutes. ...until a tester comes out clean
  • Cool pan on a cooling rack for 10 minutes then remove the loaf and allow to cool on the rack
  • Cool completely before slicing


Depending on your pan size and your oven this needs to bake for about an hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes. I have a convection oven so I try to add a little extra time for those of you that do not. This is a large loaf and meant for one pan. 
Two small apples is about 1 cup small diced. Other apples can be used according to your taste. 
If you want more of the bread on the bottom pour 3/4 of the batter and then cream cheese layer and then the remaining apple batter. Some of the cream cheese will be peaking out of the top but should prevent the cream cheese being all the way to the bottom.
