  • Transfer 1 packed cup of the sugar mixture to a small bowl. Add nuts and cinnamon, mixing well.

  • To the mixture in the large bowl, add egg, buttermilk, baking powder, and baking soda; mix well. Pour batter into a buttered 9-inch cheesecake pan with removable rim. Sprinkle cinnamon-nut mixture evenly over batter.

  • Bake in a 350° oven until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and cake begins to pull from pan sides, about 40 minutes (about 35 minutes in convection oven).

  • Cool on a rack at least 20 minutes. Remove pan rim. Serve warm or cool.

Chef's Notes

At mile-high altitude, increase flour to 2 1/4 cups and reduce baking powder to 1 1/2 teaspoons; bake as directed, allowing about 55 minutes.
