  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2 3/4 cups sugar divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups sour cream 16 ounces
  • 2 tbs ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 10-inch tube pan; set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream butter and 2 cups sugar until light fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda and salt; add alternately with sour cream, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth.
  • Spoon a third of batter into the prepared pan. Combine cinnamon, nuts and remaining sugar; sprinkle a third over batter in pan. Repeat layers two more times. Bake for 60-65 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
