Mom's Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Ellen and Curt Clifford loved Mom's Sour Cream Coffee Cake that we served after Dancing with the Brunswick Stars. So here is the recipe, which is being passed from generation to generation by me and my three sisters.

1 stick butter or margarine
1 C. sugar
2 eggs
2 C. flour
1 t. baking powder
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 C. sour cream
1 t. vanilla

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs with mixer until blended. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt, until mixture is doughy. Add sour cream and vanilla until creamy.

1 1/2 C. chopped pecans
2 T. flour
5 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 stick cold butter chopped

Place dough in well-greased and floured tube baking pan. Sprinkle topping evenly. Using a knife, push topping down into dough until none remains on top.

Bake 375 degrees for 45 minutes.
