Sour Cream Spice Cake

Sour Cream Spice Cake

This is a favorite recipe for Sour Cream Spice Cake with golden raisins, walnuts and Cream Cheese Frosting. It has everything I love in a cake plus some!

It’s rich and warmly spiced with cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves. The stars of every bite! It has a moist and tender crumb with a deliciously dense texture that is peppered throughout with just the right amount of crunchy walnuts and chewy, golden raisins. It’s enrobed in a buttery cream cheese frosting that’s borderline sinful.

And did I mention it’s a one-bowl cake? Just the stuff Cinnamon Girls dream of. But my words haven’t done it enough justice. Go make it. Now. And it will become a tried and true favorite. I promise. It will not disappoint.
