Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease bundt cake pan, tube pan, or 2 loaf pans.
Beat sugar, butter, eggs, and vanilla in large mixer bowl on medium, scraping bowl occasionally, 2 min. Beat in flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt alternately with sour cream on low speed. Prepare filling.

Spread 1/3 of the batter in the pan and sprinkle with 1/3 of the filling (about 6 T.). Repeat 2 times. Bake until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean, about 1 hr. for bundt pan. Cool slightly; remove from pan. Cool 10 min. and drizzle with glaze. Makes 14-16 servings.
