Sock-It-To-Me Cake

When we were visiting my family at Christmas my grandmother had one of these cakes that she bought at a church fundraiser.  It was good and I remember my dad saying my great grandma made the best.  I wish I remembered having hers but I don’t.  So, I thought I’d give this recipe a try to see how it compared.  I enjoyed it and the other people that ate it said the enjoyed it.

I followed recipe exactly.  Next time though I think I’ll double the filling and make the glaze a little thicker.  I also used a Bundt pan.

Recipe taken from – Heritage Cookbook (1976)

1 pkg yellow butter cake mix
1 c dairy sour cream
½ c cooking oil
¼ c sugar
¼ c water
4 eggs

2 Tbsp brown sugar
2 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl, blend cake mix, sour cream, oil, sugar and eggs.  Beat at high speed for 2 minutes.  Pour 2/3 of the batter in a gresed and floured 10” tube pan.  Combine filling ingredients and sprinkle over batter in pan.  Spread remaining batter evenly over filling mixture.  Bake at 375 for 45-55 minutes, until cake springs back when touched lightly.  Cool right side up for about 25 minutes, then remove from pan.  Glaze blend: 1 c confectioners sugar and 2 Tbsp milk.  Drizzle over cake.

Two ladies submitted this recipe and one lady uses 1 c chopped pecans in filling mix.

My friend told me this was a good addition to her morning coffee so bake it up today and enjoy with a cup of joe!
