Ever since they were tots, this has been a go-to recipe my kids can't get enough of

If you're like me, every so often, you get this urge to bake something a little nostalgic, a bit of a throwback, if you will. Sock It To Me Cake is just that – it's a Southern classic that's been around since at least the 1970s, maybe even longer. With its rich, buttery base and hints of cinnamon and nuts, it's the comfort food of cake, perfect for family gatherings, potlucks, or when you just need to treat yourself to a slice of something special. Trust me, anyone who loves a slice of good, old-fashioned cake is going to ask for seconds (and the recipe).
This cake is delightfully rich on its own, but if you want to get all fancy, serve it up with a dollop of freshly whipped cream or even a scoop of vanilla ice cream – nothing beats that hot-and-cold combo. A side of fresh fruit, like raspberries or sliced peaches, also makes a refreshing contrast to the sweet, nutty cake.
