Warm Apple and Cinnamon Cake

300g castor sugar
110g soft butter

170g cream cheese
2 eggs
200g all-purpose flour
10ml baking powder
pinch salt
60ml sugar
10ml ground cinnamon
2 x 385g tins pie apples, drained and chopped

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius.  
Lightly grease the sides and base of a 20cm springform baking tin.  
Beat castor sugar, butter, vanilla extract and cream cheese with an electric mixer at medium speed until well mixed.  
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.  
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  
Add it to the cream cheese mixture in two batches, beating at low speed until combined.  
Combine the sugar and cinnamon, and add this to the batter, reserving a little.  
Add the apples and mix until combined. 
Pour batter into the tin and sprinkle reserved cinnamon sugar evenly over the top.  
Bake until a cake skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 1 hour and 15 minutes.  
Check after 45 minutes and cover with foil if it is browning too quickly.  
Let the cake cool on a wire rack before turning out and serving.
