Pecan Sugared Coffee Cake

Pecan Sugared Coffee Cake


1 cup salted butter (or 2 sticks)-  I used 2 sticks
1/2 cup + 2 Tablespoons light brown sugar
1 large egg lightly beaten
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 + 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda

Topping + Middle layer

1 cup Pecan- super finely chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon -( I like it without the cinnamon)
1/2 cup brown sugar - (if you don't like the topping in the middle of the cake only use a 1/4 cup of the sugar to make the topping)


Lightly grease an 8x8" baking pan.*  Preheat oven to 350° F.   Combine butter and sugar in mixer and cream together until fluffy.  In a separate bowl lightly beat egg then add sour cream and vanilla pour in with the creamed sugar and butter.  Chop pecan and add sugar (and cinnamon),
set aside.  In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda and baking powder, then add to the butter mixture until all is combined.  Place half the batter in the bottom of a well greased pan, making sure to spread evenly then top with half of the topping mixture.  Repeat with other half of batter and Topping mixture.  Bake in a preheated oven for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick comes clean.  * If you double the mixture to make a 9x13 pan add an extra 5 minutes to the baking time.  Ready to serve after cooling about 10-15 minutes. 

I served this on Friday Night when we had our neighbor over for dinner and a game of Dominos.  Everyone seemed to enjoy it alot!  So today I made another one for our Sunday night family dinner.
