  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch pan, springform pan, or tube pan.
  2. Beat 1 cup sugar and butter with an electric mixer in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Add flour, sour cream, eggs, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; continue beating until ingredients integrate into a batter.
  3. Mix walnuts, 1/2 cup sugar, and ground cinnamon in a separate bowl.
  4. Pour about half the batter into the prepared pan. Sprinkle about half the walnut topping over the batter and top with remaining batter. Finish by sprinkling remaining topping over the batter.
  5. Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes (depending on pan used). Cool in the pans for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

There might a error in this.. It looked nice before it was ready to come out but dropped when it came out .. I think its too much sour cream or not the right mix of baking powder not sure but did it twice same results, most other recipes call for 1 cup 8oz not 16 but it had a good taste but very flat.. I did follow the recipe no alterations...


This baked up beautifully, and I took it to work for everyone to try. With one thing or another, I ended up not trying it, but pple were still eating it today, so it was probably pretty good (I brought it in Monday and today is Wednesday). I made three layers of the topping--there's enough to do so in this recipe if you sprinkle--because I wanted a ready made topping on the actual top of the cake. Since bundt cakes are cooked upside down, I put part of the topping on the bottom before putting the batter in. Not sure I recommend that as a lot of the sugar caramelized and stuck to the pan. Looked pretty, though! Thanks for the recipe!


I had almost 2 cups of light cream that had soured, so I looked for something to make with it. This cake was delicious! I only made 2 substitutions: brown sugar for white and pecans for walnuts in the filling. The cake was incredibly moist with a smooth texture. I made it in a bundt pan, but next time will bake it in a regular tube pan. You'll want the streusel caramelized on top! BTW, it took about 55-60 minutes in this type of pan. For the sake of your thighs, don't make this too often! It's hard to resist another slice.
