Apple Cream Cheese Bread

We went to the apple orchard this weekend, it was rainy and gross but we still managed to have a great time and bring home more apples than we could ever possibly eat.  Lots of cooking with apples has commenced in this house so be prepared to see lots of apple recipes! I have been eyeing this recipe for a while and was happy to finally make it, it's adapted from My Retro Kitchen.

For the Bread
2 cup apples (small diced)
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/3 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg

For the Cream Cheese:
6 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg

Heat oven to 350 and spray a loaf pan.  In a large bowl mix together the apples, vegetable oil, sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.   Without mixing top with the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Fold in the flour mixture to the wet ingredients.  Pour into the greased loaf pan.  In a medium bowl combine the cream cheese, sugar and egg with a hand mixer.  Pour the mixture on top of the bread mixture. With a knife swirl the cream cheese into the bread batter.  Cover loosely with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Remove the foil and continue baking for 20 to 30 minutes or until the bread is cooked through. Use a tooth pick to test the bread. Remove from oven and let the bread cool for 5 to 10 minutes before removing from pan.
