Moist and feeds many people! This is a Southern cake that gets its name from the sour cream and cinnamon tastes that will sock it to you!

Total Time: 35 minutes prep, 30 minutes baking

Yield: Recipe says 8, but served 22 students with seconds!



  • butter (for greasing the pan)
  • Filling
  • 1 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 3 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Glaze
  • 1 1/2 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp milk
  • Cake
  • 1 package yellow cake mix
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 Tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 4 large eggs


  1. Blend the streusel filling ingredients until the pecans are covered.
  2. Whisk the glaze ingredients until smooth and no lumps.
  3. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 9x13 inch pan with butter.
  4. Combine cake mix, sour cream, oil, water, sugar and flour in a large mixer bowl. Beat at medium speed for 4 minutes with electric mixer, or until blended, adding eggs one at a time. Don't overbeat, or cake will sink! (I found that out the first time!)
  5. Pour 1/2 of batter into the greased pan. Evenly pat streusel filling on top and swirl the filing into the batter with a fork. Spoon remaining batter evenly over filling.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool in pan 1/2 hour. Then invert onto cake rack until completely cooled.
  8. Ad

  9. Whisk glaze again, and drizzle over the cake. Enjoy!
