READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

Perfect with a cup of coffee! I always make two of these and freeze one, so I have one ready for unexpected guests, just remove from freezer and defrost in your microwave under the defrost cycle for a few minutes, slice then serve, this cake freezes excellent, and it's buttery moist delicious!

This is one of my favourite cakes. I have made this so many times and it's always a pleasure to serve this treat to guests:-)! Ofcourse, I always substitute the sour cream with low-fat plain yogurt in this recipe. Thanks for posting this! I sure hope you get many good reviews for this one!
