Where did the Sock it to Me Cake get its name from? Although I didn’t come to a definitive conclusion, the phrase Sock it to Me was popular in the 1960s and 1970s.

The phrase was used in Aretha Franklin’s 1967 version of the song “Respect,” and in the 1968 sketch comedy show Laugh-In.

It is unclear how the phrase correlates with the name of this cake, but nevertheless, I hope you all enjoy this recipe!
