    Marla

    List of Ingredients

    1 cup margarine or butter

    2 cups granulated sugar

    2 eggs

    1 (8 oz.) carton of sour cream

    1/2 tsp. vanilla

    2 cups all purpose flour

    1 tsp. baking powder

    1/4 tsp. salt

    1/4 tsp. baking soda

    TOPPING:

    1 cup chopped nuts (optional)

    3 tablespoons brown sugar

    2 tablespoons granulated sugar

    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

    FOR THE STREUSEL TOPPING:
    3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
    2 tsp. ground cinnamon
    1 cup chopped pecans
    3 gratings of fresh nutmeg

    Recipe

    Preheat oven to 350*. Grease a 13X9X2 inch baking pan; set

    aside.

    To make the cake: In a large mixing bowl, cream together the

    margarine

    or butter and the 2 cups of granulated sugar with an electric

    mixer on

    medium speed. Add the eggs, sour cream and vanilla; beat for 1

    minute

    more.

    In a small bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and

    baking

    soda. Add the flour mixture to the sour cream mixture. Beat

    with the

    mixer on low speed for 2 to 3 minutes or until all the

    ingredients are

    combined.

    To make the topping: In another small bowl, stir together the

    nuts,

    brown sugar, the 2 tablespoons granulated sugar and the cinnamon.

    Pour half the batter into the prepared baking pan. Sprinkle half

    the

    topping over the batter in the pan. Spoon the remaining batter

    into the

    pan, spreading it slightly over the first layer of topping.

    Sprinkle

    the remaining topping over all.

    Bake the coffee cake in the 350* oven about 35 minutes or until a

    wooden

    toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool

    slightly

    before serving.

    Makes 12 to 16 servings.






    Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

    Mix all cake batter ingredients together, beating 5 minutes.

    Combine ingredients for the streusel topping.

    Alternate cake batter and streusel mixture in an ungreased 13x9x2-inch baking pan* (starting with batter and ending with streusel). Swirl with knife.

    Bake 1 hour in a 350 degree F oven.

    *TO BAKE IN A TUBE PAN:
    Another way to bake this recipe is to put half of coffee cake batter into a well greased tube pan and add 1/2 of the streusel mixture. Pour the balance of batter on top of streusel layer, top with the remaining streusel mixture. Cut with knife to marble cake. Bake 65 minutes in a 325 degrees F degree oven.
