My Grandma's Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This is one of my favorite coffee cakes for special days. My Grandma's Sour Cream Coffee Cake! It's more of a cake than breakfast food because it's so good. I love the brown sugar and nuts and usually add more than the recipe calls for. Our family loves it!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1 1/2 cups Butter
1 1/2 teaspoons of vanilla
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. sour cream
3 c. sugar (we use about 2 1/2 to cut back a little)
3 c. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 c. brown sugar
chopped nuts (about 1 c.)
Cream butter and sugar well. Add eggs one at a time. Add vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and add alternately with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour. Pour half of the batter in a greased tube pan and sprinkle half of the brown sugar and nuts (mixed together). Then pour the rest of the batter and sprinkle the remaining brown sugar and nut mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Hope you enjoy!
