Sour Cream Coffee Cake Recipe

July 2, 2011



I’m back with a yummy recipe I promised to post, the Tate’sBake Shop Sour Cream Coffee Cake. I’m sure you’re going to agree that this is a yummy coffee cake.

A few weeks back my friend Christa and I decided to try
a recipe from my new cookbook, TATES’S BAKE SHOP Cookbook. I have always loved to bake so I immediately fell in love with this cookbook. So many yummy recipes fills the pages. Pound cakes, cookies, pies , cobblers, muffins and scones. Each recipe built from scratch from the kitchen of Kathleen King, the Hampton’s most beloved baker.

Thanks again Kathleen for a wonderful cookbook! Now on to
 the recipe:

Sour Cream Coffee Cake
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups pecan, chopped
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1 cup salted butter
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 cups sour cream
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

In a small bowl combine 1/2 cup sugar, pecans, and cinnamon. Set aside.

Cream the butter and 1/1/2 cups of sugar till they are light and fluffy.Add eggs mixing well. Add the sour cream and vanilla.

Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a small bowl.
