Serves 10 to 14
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
2 cups granulated sugar
1 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/4 cup dark brown sugar
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 stick butter, melted
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the two sticks of butter and sugar in a mixer and beat with a paddle attachment for about a minute. Add the sour cream and eggs and mix until smooth. Fold in the vanilla, flour, salt, and baking powder. Pour just under half of the batter into a well greased Bundt pan.
Melt the half stick of butter. Mix it together with the cinnamon, brown sugar, and pecans, Pour the mixture on top of the batter in the center. Layer the remaining batter.
Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool completely before removing from the pan. (If you’re making muffins or in 9×12 pan, reduce the baking time to about 35-40 minutes.)
Keeps fresh for several days and freezes well to do ahead!!!
