  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda


  • 16 oz cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg


  • 1/2 cup walnuts chopped
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup butter melted
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour approximate


  • Preheat oven to 350F/175C. Coat a 9x13-inch baking dish (the best approximation outside the US is a 3L rectangular baking dish) with non-stick spray.
  • For the cake:
  • Beat the sugar, butter and egg until smooth. Add the sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Stir in the 3 cups of flour until a sticky dough forms. Spread 1/2 of the dough evenly in the prepared pan. TIP--I distribute portions evenly around the pan them pat it to fit with wet hands. Alternately, you could use an offset spatula, but the damp hands work better.
  • Beat the cream cheese, 1/2 cup sugar and egg in another bowl until very smooth. Spoon mixture over the dough in the pan and spread it as evenly as you can.
  • Drop the remaining dough by spoonfuls over the cream cheese mixture.
  • Mix the topping ingredients together. If the crumbs seem a bit wet, add a tablespoon or two more of flour. Sprinkle the topping over the crumbs.
  • Bake for 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
