The Falling Leaves, The Chilly Breeze, The Fresh Picked Apples Mean…

It’s time for pumpkin patches and hayrides.  It’s time for Halloween!  (I unfortunately did not come up with that little rhyme… it’s from one of Jack’s books that I have completely memorized)

Let’s focus on the The Fresh Picked Apples.  YUM!  We went apple picking a few days ago and came back with (excuse my french but there is no other way to describe this) a shitload of apples!  We had tons of fun and it was beautiful out.  We have so many apples I think I’ll be able to make more than a few bread, apple butter, and pie recipes in the coming weeks!

Cream Cheese Apple Bread

For the Bread

  • 2 Apples
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/3 Cup flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice seasoning (or cinnamon & nutmeg)

Cream Cheese Topping

  • 6 oz cream cheese (I used 8 because you can never have too much cream cheese…) *apparently you can have too much… Use the 6 instead of the 8.  It was very cheesecake and I wasn’t a fan (but dave really liked that part!)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg


  1. Preheat oven 350 degrees F.
  2. Chop your apples into small pieces or grate. I peeled my apples, and pureed 1 apple and sliced the other.  Place into a large mixing bowl Add wet ingredients and mix, then add dry ingredients and mix.
  3. Combine cream cheese, sugar and egg either with a fork or mixer. Pour over the top of the batter. Using a fork or knife, gently swirl the two layers together.
  4. Bake for 30 min with a loosely covered tin foil tent. Remove foil and continue to bake an additional 15-20 min until a toothpick inserted into bread comes out clean. Allow to cool before slicing
