  • Preparation Time:



  • 1 1/2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, lightly toasted


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Butter a round, 8-inch springform pan and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  • Stir in the eggs one at a time, then the sour cream and vanilla.
  • In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt, and fold them into the moist ingredients until well blended.
  • Spoon half the batter into the baking pan, spreading it to the edges.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the brown sugar, allspice and walnuts.
  • Scatter half the brown sugar mixture on top of the batter.
  • Repeat with the remaining batter, then the rest of the sugar mixture.
  • To marbleize the layers, insert a round-tipped knife into the batter and swirl it around.
  • Bake the cake about 1 hour, until it shrinks from the sides of the pan and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Serve warm or at room temperature.
