Servings: 12 Prep 20 mins Bake 350°F 30 mins to 35 mins


  • 1 3/4 cups cake flour (not self-rising)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup nonfat milk
  • 3/4 cup butterscotch morsels
  • 1/4 cup nonfat sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons chopped pecans, for garnish

Make It

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly coat a 9 x 2-inch round baking pan with nonstick vegetable-oil cooking spray.


2. Mix together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt in small bowl until well blended.

3. Beat together the butter and sugar in medium-size bowl until well blended. Beat in the sour cream, egg and vanilla until well blended.

4. On low speed and in 2 batches, beat the flour mixture alternately with the milk into the butter mixture, beginning and ending with the flour mixture; beat 1 minute. Pour batter into prepared pan.

5. Bake in 350 degrees F oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Remove the cake from the pan. Let cake cool completely before frosting.


6. Melt the butterscotch morsels in the top of a double boiler, stirring, over simmering, not boiling, water. Remove the top of the double boiler from over the simmering water; let the butterscotch morsels cool slightly. Stir in sour cream until smooth. Let the mixture stand until set, about 5 minutes. Spread the frosting evenly over the top and sides of cooled cake. Garnish top of cake with the chopped pecans.
