SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE
Coffee cake with cinnamon and sour cream
I got this recipe from my mom. She got it, I think, from
my godmother. All of us kids in the family make it now.
It is an unusual coffee cake, good to have with morning coffee or
as an evening dessert. Enjoy it.

Add eggs!singly!beating well after each addition.
Sift flour, baking powder, and baking soda together.
Add flour mixture and sour cream to creamed mixture.
Alternate a little of each, blending after each addition.
In separate bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon together.
Add nuts and mix well.
Spread 1/2 of the batter in the tube pan.
Sprinkle 1/2 of the nut mixture evenly over batter in pan.
Cover with remaining batter.
Sprinkle with remaining nut mixture.
Bake in preheated oven for about 50 minutes.
When the cake cools, run a knife around the side of the pan and

base of the pan and remove the waxed paper.
45 minutes preparation, 50 minutes baking, 10 minutes cooling.
