    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 US | 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 US | Canada)


    This recipie was very good. I would suggest using an icing to drizzle over the top. The icing i used was: 1c. powdered sugar, 2tablespoons milk, and 1teaspon of vanilla extract.  -  04 Dec 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
