Ingredients

Cake

3 cups of flour

½ tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. salt
1 stick of softened, unsalted butter
1 cup of granulated sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup of sour cream

Filling

16 oz of soft cream cheese
½ cup of granulated sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg

Streusel Topping

¼ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup flour
3 tablespoons cool butter

Frosting

¼ cup confectioners sugar
1 ½ tsp. milk

Directions

Step One

Preheat your oven to 350° and flour a 9” x 13” baking pan.

Step Two

In a large bowl, mix together cream cheese, sugar, egg and vanilla on low speed. Continue to gradually mix until creamy and set aside.

Step Three

In another bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

Step Four

With your mixer, combine butter, vanilla extract and sugar. Alternate adding in the dry mixture and sour cream until the batter is creamy.

Pour half of the batter into the floured pan. Spread the cream cheese mixture on top, and then add the additional batter. Use a butter knife to create a swirl pattern with batter and cream cheese.

Step Six

Create a crumbly mixture using sugar, flour and butter, and sprinkle on the batter.

Bake for 40-45 min.

Step Eight

Combine confectioners sugar and milk. When the cake is cool, drizzle on the frosting and enjoy!
