I was just out in Fayette, Missouri celebrating my grandmother’s 95th birthday. Of course no celebration is complete without eating my Gran’s food, or at least her recipes! This is one of my absolute favorite recipes from my grandmother – her famous…
SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE
2 sticks Tillamook Unsalted Butter
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup Tillamook Premium Sour Cream
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ cup chopped pecans
4 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350°F. Cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla and sour cream. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt, then add gently to the creamed mix. Mix well. To prepare the nut mix, combine the chopped pecans, brown sugar and cinnamon.
Grease and flour a bundt pan. Spoon in a layer of batter, then sprinkle with half of the nut mix. Add another layer of batter and nut mix. Finish with a layer of batter. Bake for 1 hour. Don’t forget the coffee!
From my Gran, Lily Haden Nicholl.
