Cardamom Coffee Cake

1 pound butter, softened
2 cups light brown sugar
2 cups light brown sugar
4 eggs
2 teaspoons (real) vanilla extract
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon cardamom
2 cups sour cream (or yogurt or buttermilk)
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 cup walnuts, finely chopped

Preheat oven to 350 deg. F. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube or
bundt pan.

In a _large_ (she's not kidding, folks) mixing bowl, beat butter
with 2 cups brown sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at
a time, beating well after each. Stir in the vanilla.

Sift together the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and cardamom
in a separate bowl.

Add the flour mixture, 1/3 of it at a time, to the butter mixture,
alternating with the sour cream. Stir just enough to blend after
each addition. Don't beat or otherwise overmix.

Combine 1/4 cup brown sugar, cinnamon, and walnuts in a separate
small bowl.

Spoon approximately 1/3 of the batter into the prepared pan.
Sprinkle with half the nut mixture, then add another third of the
batter. Cover with remaining nut mixture, then top with remaining
batter. Lightly spread into place.

Bake approximately 1-1/4 hours or until a knife inserted all the
way in comes out clean. Allow to cool in the pan for 20 minutes,
then invert onto a plate. Cool at least 30 minutes more before
cutting into it.

(Note: It really does take that long - or even longer - to bake.
The batter may overflow the pan during baking, so spread some
aluminum foil to catch any drips.)

Serves 18
