  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease an 8 x 13-inch baking dish with nonstick spray.
  2. Make the streusel topping: In a medium bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, flour, oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, and baking powder. Mix with your fingers, massaging the butter into the dry ingredients, until well combined and loosely clumpy.
  3. Make the cake: In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar with an electric hand mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, 2 minutes. Add the apple butter, sour cream, eggs, and vanilla and mix until fully combined, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the flour, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, baking soda and salt to the wet ingredients. Mix until completely combined, about 4 minutes total.
  5. Fold in the apples with a rubber spatula until just incorporated.
  6. Make the cream cheese filling: In a medium bowl, beat together the cream cheese, heavy cream, sugar, and vanilla with an electric hand mixer on medium-low speed until smooth, 2 minutes.
  7. Pour half of the batter into the prepared baking dish, spreading evenly. Sprinkle half of the streusel on top. Add the remaining batter, spreading to cover the streusel. Spread the cream cheese filling over the batter and top with the remaining streusel.
  8. Bake the cake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
  9. Enjoy!
