  • 3-2/3 cup flour
  • 1-2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp cinnamon
  • 1-1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • Confectioner’s sugar and whipped cream (optional)

Heat oven to 350. Grease 9×3′ springform pan. In bowl, combine 1 cup flour, 1/3 cup sugar and 1/2 tsp cinnamon. In microwave-safe bowl, microwave 1/2 cup butter in 15 second intervals until melted. Stir butter into flour mixture until crumbs form; reserve.

Combine remaining flour with baking powder and salt; reserve. On medium-high speed, beat remaining sugar and 1 cup of butter until fluffy, 2 mins. On low speed, beat in eggs, one at a time, then sour cream and vanilla extract. Alternately beat in flour mixture and milk until blended. Transfer half of batter to another bowl; stir in cocoa and remaining cinnamon.

Alternately drop dollops of the two batters in pan; with spoon, swirl slightly. Gently tap pan on counter to evenly spread batter. Bake 15 mins. Remove cake from oven; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake for 40-45 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. Cool. Remove side of pan. If desired, sprinkle with confectioners’ sugar and serve with whipped cream.
