Sour Cream Coffee Cake With Pecans Recipe

Sour cream coffee cakeThis is one of those recipes I will only make if there is a large adult gathering, holidays, birthday parties, etc.  It’s not a calorie friendly cake but is absolutely delicious.  It’s moist due to the sour cream and the pecans give it added crunch.  Adults like this better than frosting cakes.  It’s an easy coffee cake recipe, that bakes for an hour.  This in my opinion is best served warm, with a cup of your favorite coffee or tea.  Enjoy.

    Looks really really good. You seem to cook/bake a lot. Not sure how you have time to do it all. LOL. This looks like my kind of dessert. Thanks for sharing.

      Cooking is a passion of mine, baking is something I like to do, but clean-up stinks. I bake on the weekends with the kids. Cook home cooked meals every night except Fridays:)

    I have never made coffee cake before, and I don’t know why since it was always one of those guilty pleasures of mine. I never thought to use sour cream in it, or pecans for that matter. I’m kind of excited to try this out.
