Sour Cream Coffee Cake

This is one of my mom's classic recipes. It is very delicious and very popular! She even used to make it for a college friend of mine, and when she heard he might be visiting, she made sure she had the ingredients on hand. When my friend didn't show, I encouraged her to make the coffee cake anyway since we were there on vacation and we love it too! The coffee cake is delicious and goes so quickly, with all 10 of us clamoring for breakfast I had to rush to take a picture. "Stop cutting!"

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1/2 pound butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 cup brown sugar
1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon

Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and blend well. Alternately add sour cream and vanilla with flour, baking powder and soda. Set aside.
