Sour Cream Coffee Cake recipe

Last week I wrote about my successful cooking of my mom's famous Christmas food breakfast of bacon breakfast casserole and sour cream coffee cake. And I owed you all the recipe for the cake, so here it is! Enjoy! If I weren't so lazy I'd make another one today.

2 cups sugar
1 1/2 sticks of butter or margarine, softened
2 eggs
2 cups of flour
1 cup of sour cream
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of vanilla
1/2 cup of chopped pecans (optional- we never had these since my mom, bro and I are all allergic)
6 teaspoons of brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon

Cream sugar and butter- use a mixer to make it very fluffy. Add eggs. sour cream, baking powder, salt and vanilla- continue mixing. Slowly add in the flour and continue mixing.

When all mixed smooth and lump-free, pour half of the batter in a GREASED tube pan. (I use either bundt or an angel food cake pan myself. And grease the pan even if it says it's a non stick one, especially if it's a bundt!)

Mix nuts brown sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl and then sprinkle half of that mixture over the 1/2 batter in the pan. Pour remaining batter on top and then sprinkle the remaining brown sugar mixture on top of that.

Bake for 45 minutes-1 hour at 350. (Don't underbake like brownies. This shouldn't be gooey anywhere)

Oh, that sounds heavenly! Sadly Prodigal Wife is not baking right now, she says we have all become overly large (I can't imagine what she might mean?). I trust she will relent by Christmas though, so I shall make a note.
Hope all's well darling!

WOW! I don't want to wait till Christmas, but I don't dare make this now cause I would want to eat too much and end up in a sugar coma.

I think you should post your great aunt Z's chicken casserole, too. Man was that ever good. I expect more coffee cake when I get home from Texas. That could be a "homecoming gift.!
