Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • TOPPING:
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • FILLING:
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 3/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Caramel ice cream topping, optional

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating just until combined.
  2. Pour into 2 greased and waxed paper-lined 9-in. round baking pans. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter. Lightly cut through with a knife to swirl.
  3. Bake at 350° until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes; remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
  4. In a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and milk until smooth. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 1-2 minutes or until thickened. Cover and refrigerate until chilled. In a small bowl, cream the butter, shortening and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add vanilla and chilled milk mixture; beat on medium speed until smooth and creamy, about 10 minutes.
  5. Place 1 cake on a serving plate; spread with filling. Top with remaining cake. Store in the refrigerator. If desired, serve with caramel topping.
