Prep Time: 25 minutes

Cook Time: 50 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour, 15 minutes

Yield: Serves 12-14


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup quick-cooking oatmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom or nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1-2 tablespoons whole milk


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray two 9" x 5" loaf pans with nonstick baking spray containing flour and set aside.

In large bowl, combine 1 cup butter with 1/2 cup sugar and 1 cup brown sugar; beat until fluffy. Add eggs, sour cream, and vanilla and beat well.

Add 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon and mix just until combined; set aside.

In medium bowl combine 1/2 cup flour, 1 cup brown sugar, oatmeal, cardamom, and 1 teaspoon cinnamon; mix well. Add 1/3 cup melted butter and mix until crumbly.

Place one-fourth of the batter into each of the prepared loaf pans and sprinkle each with one-fourth of the topping. Repeat layers, ending with topping.

Bake for 40-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool in pan for 5 minutes, then turn out onto wire racks to cool completely.

You can frost these cakes, if desired. In small bowl combine powdered sugar, 2 tablespoons brown sugar, 2 tablespoons melted butter, and enough milk for a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cooled cakes.
