A cinnamon and walnut streusel filling hides inside this moist breakfast cake. Additional streusel goes on top to add color and crunch to the final dish.


  • Nonstick cooking spray for baking
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 8 - ounce carton dairy sour cream
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped walnuts
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla


  1. Spray a 10-inch fluted tube pan with nonstick cooking spray or grease and flour; set pan aside. In a medium bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, stir together eggs, 1 cup granulated sugar, butter and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Add flour mixture to egg mixture; stir just until moistened. Add sour cream and stir vigorously until batter is smooth.
  3. For streusel: In a small bowl, stir together walnuts, brown sugar, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, cinnamon and 2 teaspoons vanilla.
  4. Spoon one-third of the batter into the bottom of the prepared pan; spread evenly. Sprinkle with one-third of the streusel. Repeat layers with remaining batter and streusel.
  5. Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 40 to 50 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool cake in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. To remove cake from pan, cover with an inverted serving plate and turn cake onto plate. Serve warm. Makes 12 servings.
