Mom’s Quick Streusel Coffee Cake



The subject was coffee yesterday so today it is time for a good coffee cake to go with the coffee.




I love coffee cake with this being a great one since it is as the title says:  quick, plus easy and delicious.  This coffee cake of Mom’s is moist with the addition of the sour cream and a treat for the morning or any time. 

Speaking of “easy”, this is how easy it is:  after dealing with 11” of snow in our driveway, we came inside and I put this coffee cake together in just a few minutes!  How easy is that?

This is the consummate old-fashioned classic coffee cake.  It is moist, delicious and perfect for a lazy Sunday breakfast or brunch.




Mom’s Quick Streusel Coffee Cake

Ingredients:

1 stick butter

2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 ½ cups flour sifted
3 teaspoons baking powder


Streusel Topping:

Ingredients:

½ cup pecans, chopped finely
½ cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon

Method:

Cream 1 stick butter with ¾ cup sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time, mixing all the time. 
Add vanilla.
Sift baking soda, flour and baking powder.
Add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream. 
Pour half of the mixture into a greased 8”x8” pan.
In a small bowl, mix streusel topping ingredients:  nuts, ½ cup sugar and cinnamon.
Sprinkle all but 1/3 cup of streusel topping mixture over top of batter.
Spread remainder of batter on top.
Sprinkle remaining 1/3 cup of cinnamon sugar streusel topping over all.
Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.

Serve this and watch it disappear from the plate!


P. S.  By the way, it is still snowing with 3” more expected today. Wish you were here to enjoy the snow and the coffee cake with us!
