Sock It To Me Cake

Sock it to me cake is a butter cake has a struesel nut filling inside of the cake.  My great-grandmother used to make sock it to me cake all of the time.  Sock it to me cake is still one of my favorite cakes to make.  You use a boxed cake mix, and add sour cream, additional eggs, cinnamon, chopped pecans to make this delightful cake.  I often make sock it to me cake without any icing.  It is sweet enough without anything additional being added.

    I have made this cake so many times, and it doesn’t last long. I use the oil, but I also use a stick of softened butter. People have tried to pay me to make this cake. It is Wonderful!

    This cake is very good. I made it about a week or so ago and got nothing but rave reviews. I did not use any glaze and it was fine without it. YUM….it will be a keeper and I will make it again.
