This beautiful, buttery, cinnamon and brown sugar filled Southern Classic – Sock It To Me Cake – is Nathan’s favorite cake.
It is the one he requests for every birthday.
This year, Monkey and Princess helped me make Nathan’s birthday cake.
I love passing family recipes on to my kids, watching their eyes take in the tattered and stained recipe cards, the smells the same ones that I remember from my own childhood.
With this cake, we even had a milestone reached.
Monkey finally mastered cracking eggs into the bowl without getting eggshells in the bowl!!!
Look! Even the eggs were happy!
This cake is so simple to make – it starts with a boxed cake mix – as so many delicious Southern recipes do and the rich buttery flavor is enhanced by cinnamon, brown sugar, walnuts and even sour cream. Y’all should have seen Princess’ face when I told her there was sour cream in this cake
Here it is -
After the gifts were presented and a few tears shed by a very touched and proud Daddy, the cake was served and declared the best one yet – which is saying A LOT – as I’ve been making this cake for Nathan for over 13 years.
I hope y’all try out this southern and family favorite recipe!
