  4. Stir in the sour cream and vanilla extract. The sour cream offers moistness, while vanilla is like the heartwarming background music to our delicious drama.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. This ensures that all the rising agents are evenly distributed for a consistent cake texture.
  6. Gently fold the dry mixture into the wet ingredients. Remember, overmixing is the enemy of fluffiness!
  7. Pour half of the cake batter evenly into your prepared pan. This will form the luscious base for your crumb topping.
  8. Sprinkle your glorious crumb mixture over the first layer of batter.
  9. Now, gently spread the remaining batter over the crumb layer. Ah, the anticipation!
  10. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, brown sugar, and walnuts. Drizzle in the melted butter and stir until crumbles form.
  11. Bake for about 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. This is your ‘me-time’ to savor the heavenly aroma filling your kitchen.
  12. Once baked, let the cake cool before cutting into it. This ensures the crumbly topping doesn’t fall apart, and the flavors meld together.
