The phrase "sock it to me" was popular in the late 1960s and 1970s. It was a phrase used in several songs and was often featured in the comedy show, "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In."
This popular cake is made with a cake mix, sour cream, cinnamon, and pecans, along with other ingredients. This is a nice cake to take along to a potluck or serve as a coffee cake. The cake would be delicious even without the glaze; just sift some plain powdered sugar over the cake before serving.
- Generously grease and flour a Bundt cake pan. Heat the oven to 375 F (190 C/Gas 5).
- In a small bowl mix 2 tablespoons of the dry cake mix with the cinnamon, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar, and the chopped pecans; set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer, combine the cake mix with the sour cream, eggs, vegetable oil, 1/4 cup of sugar (granulated or brown sugar), and water. Beat on low speed until well blended. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes longer.
- Pour about two-thirds of the batter (about 3 cups) into the prepared Bundt cake pan. Sprinkle the cinnamon and pecan mixture in the center of the batter and carefully drop and spread remaining batter evenly over the pecan mixture.
- Bake the cake for 35 to 45 minutes, until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pan on a rack for 25 minutes. Carefully remove from pan.
In a small bowl combine the powdered sugar, milk or cream, and vanilla. Blend thoroughly, adding more milk or cream, as needed to make a thin glaze. Drizzle the glaze over the cooled cake.
