Coffee Cake

This is my Grandmom's recipe for a sour cream coffee cake.  I usually double it and get three round cakes out of it and freeze a couple.  They freeze really well.

Coffee Cake

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla

Topping:  1/3 cup brown sugar firmly packed, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1 cup finely chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs, one at a time, beating well.  Sift dry ingredients together.  Add to creamed mixture alternating with sour cream, beginning and ending with flour.  Stir in vanilla.  Pour 1/2 batter into buttered 9x9 baking pan.  Cover with 1/2 of nut topping.  Pour remaining batter over filling and top with rest of nut mixture.  Bake about 40 minutes.
