Apple Cinnamon Coffee Cake

Ok, I realize it's been almost FOUR months since I've last posted. Is anyone still reading? Probably not. But, I made this coffeecake this morning for Bible Study and there were requests for the recipe. It's just too good not to share. The only downside is I don't think it's the type of thing you could make a day in advance. No idea where it came from, found it in my box and took a chance.

Apple Spice Coffee Cake
1 & 3/4 cup flour
1 & 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tart apples, peeled and chopped (I used Braeburn)
2 TBs. lemon juice
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 stick of butter, softened
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
1 & 1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
Glaze: 3/4 cup powdered sugar
2 TB. skim milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
pinch of salt, to taste
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, if using a glass pan 325. Grease either a 9 inch springform pan or square pan. If you double the recipe it'll fill a 10X15 inch pan. Combine the dry ingredients in a small bowl. Toss the apples in another bowl with lemon juice, cinnamon and brown sugar. In a mixer, beat butter, sugar, and cream cheese until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs. Gently mix in dry ingredients. Fold in apples. Bake 60-70 minutes, until top is golden brown and a toothpick comes out clean. Whisk the glaze ingredients together and drizzle over top.
