  5. In a medium bowl, mix together the wet ingredients
  6. Add the wet mix to the dry and stir, just until combined
  7. Fold in the apples.Pour about ½ of the batter into the greased pan and then top with the cream cheese filling, keeping a one inch border around the pan's edge
  8. Pour the rest of the batter over the filling.Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean
  9. It might be a little sticky and that's okay because it'll continue to cook even after it's out of the oven
