I love this cake that is essentially a basic cake with walnuts then a sugar and cinnamon layer swirled through the middle.
Very nice cake. Excellent crumb,texture and taste. Cream butter and sugar first, add eggs one at a time, then vanilla. Add sour cream and flour mixture alternately, beginning and ending with flour. To avoid a crusty, over-baked exterior bake at standard 350 degrees. Also, for a moist cake, do not overbake! This cake is very similar to one made with a yellow cake mix, but a much tastier choice. I omitted the nuts and used brown sugar for the filling--no need at all to double filling ingredients--then drizzled with a powdered sugar glaze when cool. Excellent recipe! - 13 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I read the other reviews and made some modifications when I made the cake. I coated the Bundt pan with cinnamon & sugar, used brown sugar instead of white for the filling, omitted the nuts and added a little extra sour cream (light) to the batter. Results were great!! We took it to a friend's house and I got a desperate e-mail two days later that the cake was finished and they needed the recipe ASAP. - 03 Oct 2002 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This has been a big hit, very good but not too sweet. The first time I tried this recipe the sour cream and butter were quite lumpy so I started over. I now cream the sugar and butter before adding the eggs and sour cream. I also substituted pecans instead of walnuts. Do grease your pan well! - 19 Mar 2003 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
