Sock It To Me Cake!

At first glance, this cake looks like a fairly standard pound cake.  It’s not until you slice into it that you see the cinnamon-pecan filling.  Talk about a nice surprise there!  And if you pop a slice of this cake in the microwave for about 15 seconds or so?  You’ll be in for a real treat!  This cake will taste like it just came out of the oven – and it’ll have you saying “Sock it to me!”  (Ok, you probably won’t actually say that, but I couldn’t resist.)  Either way, I hope you enjoy this cake as much as I do!  It’s the kind of cake that can be served for dessert at night and then again for brunch in the morning.  Happy baking!
