Mother’s Day passed recently and I thought it would be a nice treat if I baked a coffee cake for my grandmother who’s been ill. It was a crowd pleaser. agreatdayforcake.tumblr.com
In a mixer, cream together the butter and sugar.
Add the eggs to the mixture, one at a time, and beat well after each addition.
In a separate bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.
Add the dry ingredients to the other mixture alternately with the sour cream and vanilla. Mix until combined.
Mix your ingredients for the topping together in a small bowl.
Pour half of the batter into a greased baking pan and sprinkle with half of the topping. Add the remainder of the batter on top, and sprinkle with the remaining topping.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Enjoy!
