I followed the recipe strictly for this cake, both as to ingredients and amounts. It came out looking pretty as a picture and tastes very nice, too. However, the cream cheese mixture never got very firm although the sweet bread and the apples are cooked through. If I make this again I think I will make up only about half of the cream cheese mixture, and add a little vanilla to it. I might use more sugar with the apples, too.
