1/2 cup unsalted butter softened

1 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs 1 cup sour cream

2 cups all-pursue flour

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp salt 

Cinnamon Walnut Filling:

3/4 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar

6 tbsp softened butter

1 tablespoon cinnamon

1 cup chopped walnuts 


Vanilla Glaze:

1 Cup Powdered sugar

3 tbsp Unsalted Butter

1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract


Preheat Oven to 350 f

Bake for 45 to 50 mins

1  To make the batter, place the butter and sugar in mixer bowl and beat for about 2 minutes it should fluffy. Stop and scrape bowl. Then add the eggs and beat for about a minute, until creamy. Add the sour cream and mix until combined.


2  Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Add the flour mixture gradually into mixer with wet ingredients. Mix until combined, batter should be very thick.


3  To prepare the cinnamon walnut filling. Place softened butter, brown sugar, chopped Walnuts and cinnamon into a bowl. Mix until crumbly or about a minute.


4  Spray bundt cake pan with baking spray. Then spread half the batter into the bottom of the pan. Scoop the cinnamon walnut filling onto the center of the batter. Cover the cinnamon walnut filling with the remaining batter.


5  Preheat oven to 350 f, bake the bundt cake for 45 to 50 mins. Or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the bundt cake comes out clean.


6  While the bundt cake is baking make the glaze. Start by melting 3 tbsp of butter in a medium size bowl. Add the cup of powdered sugar and vanilla extract. Mix with a spoon until the glaze is smooth and flows off the spoon. If the glaze is too runny add just a little more powdered sugar. If it's too stiff heat it up in a microwave for 15 secs. 


7  When the bundt cake is done baking, let it cool for 5 mins in the pan. Then flip it over onto a cake stand or plate. And pour glaze over the warm bundt cake. Let it cool and serve.
