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!
Part pound cake - part coffee cake, a Sock It To Me Cake is a delicious treat that can be served for dessert at night and brunch the next morning!
