apple coffee cream cheese cake

For one of our Christmas dinners, I baked a Spiced Apple Cream Cheese Cake, using this recipe. The cake has three layers: a coffee cake layer, cream cheese layer and an apple topping. Note that the coffee cake doesn't actually have coffee in it, but is just the colour of coffee. This might be an American thing to do- to give a cake a description based on its appearance rather than taste (i.e. red velvet).

It was a nice cake with a good proportion of cake to apples. The cream cheese was a 'special little extra' to the cake, but I got the sense that it confused my family/family friends as cream cheese isn't a common addition to cakes.
