Apple Cinnamon Loaf Cake 苹果肉桂蛋糕
This Apple Cinnamon Loaf Cake is moist, tender and delicious with the lingering of cinnamon fragrance in the kitchen during the process of baking. As there is some leftover cream cheese from making the Butter Cheese Cake in my previous post, and not putting it to waste, I just mixed it in after creaming the butter and sugar. The end result is perfect. This cake is loaded with apple cubes internally and with slices of apple on the outside. Really wonderful with every bite! This cake kept extremely well in the chiller for 5 days. Just thaw it at room temperature for about 10 minutes and it’ll stay moist and soft. It’s another keeper recipe!
So perfect to serve with a cup of hot coffee ~~

How much ingredients I should reduce if I want to make a 6inch cake?
Hi Janice, can use half recipe for a 7 inch round cake pan. If using a 6 inch cake pan, the cake will be a little higher for half recipe.
Looks so delicious!
Hi Ann, can l leave out the cream cheese?
Yes sure 🙂
This is one of the most beautiful cinnamon apple cakes I have ever seen. Fantastic crumb, Ann.
