Ready in 2 hours
Tangy cranberries and apples with the sweet spice of cinnamon.
Preheat oven to 350F Beat 1/2 cup sugar, cream cheese, butter and vanilla in a mixer at medium until well blended (about 4 minutes). Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Combine flours, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to creamed mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Combine cinnamon mixture and chopped apples in a bowl, and stir the apple mixture into batter. Pour half the batter into a 10-inch springform pan coated with cooking spray; sprinkle with 1/2 cup cranberries. Pour the remaining batter and arrange 1/2 cup cranberries
Bake for about 1- 1 ? hours or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the pan and toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake. Check periodically; you may need to cover the cake loosely with foil to prevent over-browning. Cool the cake completely on a wire rack, and cut using a serrated knife.
Makes 12 servings.
