Cranberry Cheese and Apple Cake

Do you like to eat a small piece of cake and feel satisfied? This is the cake to try!!!!  It is so rich, creamy, mildly sweet, filled with apples. Adding the cranberry cheese gives it a slight tangy flavor from the cranberry which balances out the sweetness from the sugar. During christmas got to taste the Wensleydale Creamery cheese in our local grocery store. Loved this cheese as it was very creamy, firm and slightly sweet. So bought a big bar of the cheese and have frozen it. Tried the recipe from their website with a lil modification to replace egg and multi-grain flour.
