Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Another Sunday morning coffee cake from our recipe box!  This coffee cake has a lovely texture, and is especially moist, from the cup of sour cream. The sweet, nutty topping adds a nice crunch.


1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt

Combine topping ingredients, set aside.

For cake, cream butter and sugar in mixing bowl.  Add eggs, sour cream and vanilla and mix well.  Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.  Add to creamed mixture.  Beat until combined.  Pour half of the batter in a greased 9 x 13 x 2 baking pan.  Sprinkle with half of the topping.  Add remaining batter, and then topping.  Bake at 325° for 40 minutes, or until cake tests done.
