Grease a 9 by 9 inch baking pan, and heat the oven to 350
Cream together softened butter and sugar. Add the
eggs, mix in well and add sour cream and vanilla.
In another bowl mix the dry ingredients; flour, baking
soda, and baking powder.
Add the dry ingredients to the creamed ingredients,
stirring in about 1/2 cup at a time.
In another bowl, mix the "MIDDLE" ingredients; nuts,
sugar and cinnamon.
Put half the dough in the baking pan. Sprinkle the
"MIDDLE" ingredients on top, then cover with the rest
of the dough.
Baking time is about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is
golden and pulling slightly away from the pan.
Optional: Once the cake has cooled you can sprinkle the
top with powdered sugar. We usually couldn't wait long
enough for the cake to cool and eat it without.
