Anyway, I asked my kids what dessert they wanted for Christmas. Christopher said he didn't really care and Crystal said she didn't want a dessert (can you believe?) but Holly gave me three suggestions...Apple Pie, Texas White Sheet Cake or Sock It To Me Cake! They all sounded yummy but the Sock It To Me cake won out!
However, I did take pictures as I was making the cake so I am gonna get busy sharing those with you and the recipe too!!! So, here we go!
SOCK IT TO ME CAKE
1 - Box of Yellow, Butter Recipe Cake Mix
3/4 cup of cooking oil
1/2 cup sugar
1 - 8 ounce carton Sour Cream
FILLING: (I actually doubled this but next time I would double everything except the pecans)
3 tablespoons light Brown Sugar
1/2 cup chopped Pecans
2 teaspoons Ground Cinnamon
1 heaping cup Powdered Sugar
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
PREHEAT OVEN TO 350 DEGREES
Place cake mix and sugar into the large bowl
Make a "well" and pour in oil
Add the sour cream and mix slowly.
Add eggs, one at a time beating after each addition.
Spray a bundt pan with Baker's Joy or grease and flour the pan.
Pour half of the batter into the pan.
Combine pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl.
Spread the mixture over the batter
Pour the remaining batter over the top of the cinnamon, pecan, sugar mixture
Place in a 350 degree oven for 1 hour.
Remove from oven and let sit for 10-15 minutes. Flip out on a cake plate and let cool.
Drizzle with icing.
This is a recipe that I will definitely be making again! It was scrumptious!!!!
