Classic Sour Cream Coffee Cake

TL's Notes: 3/14/11 Sis made this this weekend when we went over for the Love and Respect Seminar at Bethel Church. It was to die for... Greg loved it! I will make it for small group next week and hopefully remember to take my own picture!!

Savor a classic! A brown sugar, nut and spice filling is layered and baked in a rich sour cream coffee cake.

cup packed brown sugar
cup chopped pecans
1 1/2
teaspoons ground cinnamon

Coffee Cake
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or whole wheat flour
1 1/2
teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2
teaspoons baking soda
teaspoon salt
1 1/2
cups granulated sugar
cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2
teaspoons vanilla
1 1/2
cups sour cream

Light Brown Glaze
cup butter
cups powdered sugar
teaspoon vanilla
to 2 tablespoons milk
  1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan or 10-inch angel food (tube) cake pan.
  2. In small bowl, mix all Filling ingredients; set aside.
  3. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, 3/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and the eggs with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream on low speed.
  4. Spread 1/3 of the batter (about 2 cups) in pan; sprinkle with 1/3 of the Filling (about 6 tablespoons). Repeat twice.
  5. Bake about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool 10 minutes.


     6.    Meanwhile, in 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat 1/4 cup butter over medium heat until very light brown; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glaze is smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle cake with glaze.
