When my hubby’s birthday was approaching, he asked me if I could make a delicious cheesecake for him instead of a cake. I said Of course! but then I got thinking what can I make that wouldn’t have chocolate but not macadamia either since I had made it a week before. Talking to my dear friend Dana from This Silly Girl’s Kitchen, she suggested making it topped with fried apple and cinnamon. I knew right away that would be a hit with my hubby. He loves that flavor combo.

Dana made this delicious and mouthwatering fried Apple Crumble from which I got the fried apple recipe. You gotta check that one out too! Yummm.

Let’s bake this Caramel Fried Apple Cinnamon Cheesecake

Cheesecake

  • 1 tsp of Vanilla
  • 24 oz of Cream cheese {Room temperature}
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 3 Large Eggs (4 if medium)
  • 1-2 tsp ground cinnamon {or to taste}

Fried Apple Topping

  • 2 granny smith apples, cored and cut into 4ths, then 3rds
  • 4 Tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • 3 Cup light brown sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 4-5 tbsp Salted Caramel sauce

Crust

  • 12 oz of graham cracker {you can use any kind graham cracker but with honey or nuts are great}
  • 4 oz of melted unsalted butter

Directions:

First prepare your salted caramel sauce or if you have it store-bought, keep them handy. But if you really want to make this dessert DELICIOUS, I would totally encourage to make this caramel sauce recipe!

For the crust, turn the graham crackers into crumbs with a food processor. When the crumbs are very small add the melted butter and mix for about 2 min to blend it well.

Butter or spray 9×9″ spring pan {you can use wax paper too for the bottom}.  Pour graham  mixture in the pan and press and pat into bottom until it’s even. Bake at 350 ºF degrees 5-10 minutes. Set aside.

Using a hand or electric mixer, beat cream cheese, until creamy fluffy, add in sugar, vanilla, cinnamon and eggs {one at a time}. Keep mixing about 3-5 minutes.

Transfer filling to prepared crust.

Bake until cheesecake puffs and edges crack slightly, about 45 to 60 minutes.

Bring cheesecake to rack and let it cool completely.

Chop your apples into 4ths, then 3rds.

While baking the cheesecake, place butter into a large pan over medium heat.

Melt butter, add in the brown sugar and cinnamon, stir to combine.

Add in the apples, coat in the butter mixture and let it cook stirring occasionally until the apples are just fork tender, about 10 minutes. Set aside.

When cheesecake is done and cool, top it with the fried apple mixture. Since I was going to add salted caramel, I tried to pour more apple and less cinnamon-sugar mixture.

Then pour your caramel unevenly as much as you like all over the cheesecake on top of everything.

Cover cake with plastic wrap and chill cake overnight. {In the picture I had removed the sides only for photo purposes, then I put it back}

Remove sides of pan or pull from wax paper.

Serve and enjoy!!!
