A good friend gave me this recipe. I've made it often, and everyone loves it.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • FILLING:
  • 6 ounces cream cheese
  • 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • CINNAMON-NUT TOPPING:
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream, beating well after each addition. Set aside.
  2. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Spoon half of the batter into a greased and floured 10-in. tube pan. Top with filling and remaining batter. Combine topping ingredients; sprinkle over batter.
  3. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack.
