Fall Favorites

photos_eckerts I don’t know about all of you, but I am so ready for Fall. Of course, the main reason is it is my favorite season.

I l♥ve EVERYTHING about it …the crisp air, the  beautiful changing leaves, going to our local pumpkin patch and cooking all of my family’s favorite comfort foods.

So, I thought that I would share a YUMMY Fall dessert.

FRENCH APPLE CAKE

  • 4 tsp. of Water
  • 1/2 Lemon
  • 6 Apples
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 cup(s) of Flour
  • 8 ounce(s) of Melted Butter
  • 4 ounce(s) of Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 3 Optional Ingredients
  • 8 ounce(s) of Nuts and Honey Philadelphia Cream Cheese
  • 1 cup(s) of Whipping Cream
  • 1/4 cup(s) of Powdered Sugar

Steps

  1. Preheat oven to 350
  2. Prepare a caramel: heat 3/4 cup sugar with 4 teaspoons 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 spring form pan with the caramel.
  4. Peel, core and thinly slice the apples and arrange in an attractive circular overlapping overlaping pattern on the caramel.
  5. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs with 3/4 cup sugar.
  6. Add the flour, butter and Philadelphia Cream Cheese and continue beating until you have a creamy batter.
  7. Pour over apples and caramel and bake for 35 minutes
  8. Let cool slightly prior to turning over onto a decorative cake plate.
  9. Optional: While cake is baking beat Nuts and Honey Philadelphia Cream Cheese until fluffy. 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 spoonfull of Philadelphia Cream Cheese/whipped Cream mixture and enjoy!
