DIRECTIONS

  • Prepare the filling by combining the filling ingredients in a small bowl.
  • Stir to combine well.
  • Set aside.
  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • For the cake, cream the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl, using a hand mixer on medium speed for 45 seconds.
  • Scrape down the sides with a rubber spatula.
  • Add the eggs and beat for 30 seconds.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Add the coffee, vanilla extract, and sour cream.
  • Beat on low speed for 30 seconds, until well creamed.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, and baking powder.
  • Pour the creamed mixture over the top of the flour mixture, scraping the bowl well.
  • Mix on low speed for 45 seconds just to combine, stopping to scrape down the sides of the bowl.
  • Prepare a 10-cup bundt pan, either by thoroughly spraying with nonstick cooking spray or greasing with shortening and flouring the pan.
  • Pour in half the batter.
  • Sprinkle half the filling evenly over the top of the batter.
  • Pour the remaining batter evenly over the filling.
  • Use a rubber spatula to scrape the batter from the bowl and smooth the batter.
  • Sprinkle the remaining filling evenly over the batter.
  • Bake in the center of the oven for 50 to 55 minutes, until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for 5 minutes; then turn it out onto a plate.
  • Serve warm or cooled to room temperature, drizzled with a glaze, frosted with Buttercream Frosting or sprinkled with powdered sugar.
  • Buttercream Frosting:
  • MAKES ENOUGH TO FROST A LARGE BUNDT CAKE.
  • Using a hand mixer on medium speed, beat together the butter and margarine about 3 minutes, or until light and creamy.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula as needed.
  • Add the confectioners' sugar, 1/2 cup at a time, beating about 2 minutes after each addition, until light and creamy.
  • Beat in the vanilla extract.
