What is a Sock it to Me Cake?

The Sock it to Me cake has been around since the 1970s. The cake actually gets its name from the TV show Laugh-In. If you have never had one of these cakes you will know they are a buttery bundt cake that has a cinnamon and pecan streusel filling. This cake was based on a Duncan Hines cake mix recipe that has been on the box since the 1970s.

How to Make this Recipe

This cake can be made with or without the icing on top. Here’s what you will need for the cake:

  • Box of Yellow Cake Mix, divided
  • Eggs
  • Sour Cream
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Sugar
  • Flour
  • Pecans
  • Cinnamon

You will actually make the streusel first. In a mixing bowl, combine two tablespoons of the cake mix with brown sugar, cinnamon, and pecans. In a separate bowl, mix together the rest of the cake mix with the eggs, sour cream vegetable oil, water, sugar, and flour. Make a glaze for the top with confectioners sugar and milk.

Notes

  • You will want to make sure you use a full-fat sour cream. It will taste better than if you use fat-free or low-fat.
  • If you want you can use walnuts instead of pecans. Just make sure it’s finely chopped walnuts
  • Make sure the cake is completely cooled down before adding the glaze.  This will make sure you don’t have a soggy mess.

    I have made this cake so many times, and it doesn’t last long. I use the oil, but I also use a stick of softened butter. People have tried to pay me to make this cake. It is Wonderful!

    This cake is very good. I made it about a week or so ago and got nothing but rave reviews. I did not use any glaze and it was fine without it. YUM….it will be a keeper and I will make it again.
