    my mom called this cake [ sock it to me ] kids an grand kids loved it . an yes it freezes well .

  4. My great grandmother had a very similar recipe with walnuts and cinnamon. I omit the nuts usually because a lot of people dont eat nuts. But I think raisins will be an interesting addition. When I make it next I will have to make one with raisins (I usually make two at a time because they go so fast around my family)

  5. Can u make this bake with all the ingredients and leave the sour cream out?

  6. I made this with plain greek yogurt instead of sour cream. It was AMAZING!!!!

  7. Can. I made this cake and freeze it as I would love to serve it on Boxing Day. But I know I won’t have time to make it with all my grandchildren here
