This can literally be thrown together at the last minute. I couldn't tell you how many times I have made this cake but there is never a crumb left. Great for a get together for coffee and a chat.

Nice cake. I only had 1 cup of sour cream so I made up the difference with vanilla fat free yogurt. I used a bundt pan and put some of the topping in before adding the dough since that would be the top of the cake.

Excellent cake. The texture is perfect - very moist! I baked mine for 45 minutes in a bunt pan and actually could have baked it a few minutes less. I also made a thin icing to drizzle over the top when it was finished. I will definitely be making this again but will add a little salt next time. Thanks for a great recipe!

I also doubled the topping. I swirled instead of layering the topping. I used a 9 x 13 & needed about 45 minutes. Very moist, dh said "it's wonderful". Keeper!
