How to Make French Apple Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Directions
    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. To prepare the caramel, heat 3/4 cup granulated sugar with 4 tsp. water. When the sugar becomes light brown, add the juice of 1/2 lemon and remove from heat.
    3. Coat the bottom and sides of a springform pan with the caramel.
    4. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and arrange in an attractive circular overlapping pattern on the caramel.
    5. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with remaining 3/4 cup granulated sugar. Add the flour, butter, PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese (4 oz.) and continue beating until you have a creamy batter.
    6. Pour over apples and caramel and bake for 35 minutes. Let cool slightly prior to turning over onto a decorative cake plate.



    Optional: While cake is baking, beat PHILADELPHIA Honey Nut Flavor Cream Cheese until fluffy. Separately, beat whipping cream until fluffy and then add 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Gently fold the whipped PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese into the whipped cream and chill well using the freezer, if necessary. Top the warm cake slices with a spoonful of PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese/whipped cream mixture and enjoy!
