I know its very common to eat cake for breakfast in many countries in Europe. I'm game for that! Give me cake for breakfast any day. I would love to make this apple cream cheese cake. I love cheese cake. I don't usually make baked cheese cakes so I am looking forward to trying this one. I like the cinnamon sugar on the top. Yum!

Apples and cream cheese...you can count me in! I just love apples in everything and I've learned that they help in keeping whatever you bake them into moist. This is kinda like an apple cheesecake extravaganza but I agree with you Edmund, I'd rather use walnuts instead of pecans...they seem to go much better with the apples I think.

I love apple cakes and this looks like a wonderful variation. I'm a little puzzled by the directions, though. The directions call for the apples to be peeled, though the video clearly shows the apples with the peels left on. I normally peel apples when I make an apple cake, but I'd like to try it with the unpeeled apples and see how it tastes. I'd also use walnuts rather than the pecans suggested in the video.

I don't think it's strange to eat cake for breakfast. Many countries in Europe start off their day with sweet things for breakfast. I love the sound of this apple cake. It must be so good with the cream cheese. I would love to make this. What I especially like is the 'surprise' sugar, cinnamon and pecan nuts on the top.
