  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp ground allspice
  • ½ cup butter unsalted, melted
  • 1 ½ cup sour cream
  • 1 ¼ cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 eggs


  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tablespoons butter unsalted, melted
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • ½ cup pecans, finely chopped optional


  • ½ cup powdered sugar sifted
  • 1 tbsp milk
  • ½ tsp vanilla extract



  • Whisk the flour, sugar, salt, and cinnamon evenly together. Pour in the melted butter and mix until combined. It should be crumbly. Add in your pecans if you wish to use them. Set aside in the fridge until ready to use.


  • Preheat oven 350°F and grease your pan
  • In a medium bowl sift or whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, allspice, and salt.
  • In a different bowl mix the sugar, melted butter, eggs, sour cream, and vanilla until well combined. Then add in the dry ingredients until evenly mixed but be careful not to over mix.
  • Pour in half of the batter into your pan and sprinkle on half of the streusel. Pour the remaining batter on top and evenly spread it out, then sprinkle on the rest of the streusel.
  • Bake for 45 - 55 minutes or until cake is done. Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle. If you notice that it's browning too quickly cover with foil.
  • Let the cake cool for at least 30 minutes
  • Drizzle with glaze if you desire and let it set then serve
