1/4 cup sugar

3 packed tablespoons dark brown sugar

1/2 cup walnuts, toasted and coarsely chopped

2 teaspoon vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon


2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon fine salt

Generous pinch freshly grated nutmeg

Generous pinch ground mace

3/4 cup unsalted butter, plus more for the pan, room temperature

1 cup sugar

2 large eggs, room temperature

1 cup sour cream

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  1. Make the streusel by mixing the sugar, brown sugar, walnuts, vanilla, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Set it aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Generously brush a round 9 by 2-inch deep cake pan with butter. In a medium bowl whisk the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg and mace together and set it aside.
  3. In a standing mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or with an electric hand-held mixer, cream the butter and sugar on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing until incorporated. Mix the vanilla with the sour cream. Add the flour mixture in 3 parts to the butter mixture, alternating with the sour cream in 2 parts until just combined.
