Sour Cream Cake


This easy sour cream cake makes a great coffee cake, or bake it for a weekend treat or potluck take-along.


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar


Heat oven to 350°. Grease a 12-cup Bundt cake pan.

In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, 1 1/4 cups of sugar, vanilla and eggs; beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, blend in the sour cream.

In a separate bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder. Gradually stir sifted dry ingredients into creamed mixture.

Combine the walnuts, cinnamon and 3 tablespoons of sugar in separate bowl or cup and set aside. Spoon about one-third of the batter into the prepared Bundt pan. Sprinkle half of walnut-sugar mixture over batter. Layer another one-third of batter. Sprinkle with remaining nut mixture and top with remaining batter. Bake for 1 hour, or until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center of the cake.

Cool cake completely before removing from pan.
