Cinnamon Sour Cream Cake

Posted in by blkris | Edit
This is a great recipe to take to parties and gatherings.  If you have ever been to a Corner Bakery store, you will know what this tastes like.  Theirs is better of course, partly because I didn't have to make it.  But alas, there are no Corner Bakery stores here in Boise for me to enjoy a nice slice of this stick- to- your-hips sweet cake.  Yes, you may choke when you see the amount of butter and sugar, but that is why I take it to get togethers... my secret plan is to make my friends fat, so I don't have to eat it all and get fat myself! :)
