Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Andrew's favorite breakfast--one he always requests for his Birthday Breakfast.

3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup walnuts

Combine the above ingredients and set aside.

3/4 cup butter
1 1/4 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1 1/2 cup sour cream
3 eggs
1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cream the butter and sugar, then add the sour cream and eggs. Mix the dry ingredients together and add to the creamed mixutre. Spoon half of the batter into a greased 9 x 13 pan and sprinkle half of the cinnamon/sugar/nut mix on top. Smooth the remaining batter over the top and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon/sugar/nut mix on top.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Serve warmed with a bit of whipped cream on top.

*Note I have also left out the nuts and added a layer of frozen blueberries tossed with a tablespoon or two of flour or cornstarch in between the two layers of batter. Very tasty.
