when it snows, she will bake

sour cream cake

all the snow and ice down here in atlanta has kept me cooped up in my condo.  thank goodness i made a trip to kroger beforehand!  the last three days i’ve been by myself since our office has been closed.  i’ve been able to accomplish quite a bit for work and for the house, but there’s only so much one person can do.  so!  i decided i needed to do something fun and bake a cake.  this sour cream streusel cake is a recipe from my aunt cindy out in los angeles.  enjoy!

cake ingredients

1 package yellow cake mix

8 ounces sour cream

1 small box vanilla pudding

1/2 cup oil

4 eggs

streusel ingredients

2 Tablespoons cocoa

1/4 cup white sugar

1/2 cup chopped pecans


blend together the cake ingredients and beat 2 minutes with electric mixer.  batter will be thick.

mix together the streusel ingredients.

pour 1/3 of the cake batter into a well-greased and floured bundt pan.

sprinkle 2/3 of the streusel mix over the batter.

pour remaining cake batter on top.

top with remaining streusel mixture.

bake 50-60 minutes at 350 degrees fahrenheit.


this cake is light and fluffy and just sweet enough.  i probably could have eaten half the cake myself, but thank goodness i have the smallest amount of self-control.  i just hope i can take it to the office, because if it stays here in the house with me, it won’t last long.
