We went all out on this Ultimate Sour Cream Coffee Cake. Big flavor baked into a loaf cake that slices up perfectly!
I am going to just be home, trying not to eat this entire cake….it’s just sitting there all lonely and stuff. I guess it’s time for a trip to the neighbors. They love it when I am dieting. Ding Dong – ‘Honey, get the door. It’s that lady that used to be fat – she brings us the most delightful stuff!”.
So happy I can be of service….sharing the chub, one neighbor at a time.
I used pecans but walnuts or almonds would work just as well.
I used a loaf pan but a 9 x 9 will work just as well.
If you want 2 loaves or a 9 x 13 size cake pan – just double the ingredients and it will work fine.
