Don't Forget the Coffee Cake

I promised this recipe way back at Christmas, but instead of posting it there, I post it here so you know I finally did it.

I actually messed it up completely the first time, putting in a cup of sour cream without realizing it.  It was extremely moist yet still quite edible, even tasty.  But I won't do that again (even if the kids will be surprised that it's not so "mooshy.")

The recipe is printed on the embossed Christmas dish, which is impossible to really get clean.  And I don't think it will just be for Christmas anymore . . . .

Christmas Morning Coffee Cake
1 1/2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

Streusel:
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons butter, room temperature
2 tablespoons flour
2 teaspoons cinnamon
walnuts or pecans, optional

Mix first three cake ingredients and set aside. In separate bowl, beat egg until frothy.  Beat in sugar and butter.  Add milk, sour cream, and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and mix on low.  Do not over mix.  Combine streusel ingredients and set aside.

Grease 9" round cake pan or 8 x 8" baking dish.  Put 1/2 batter in dish and spread evenly.  Cover with 1/2 streusel topping.  Repeat and top with chopped nuts if desired.  Bake in preheated 350F oven for 35-45 minutes.
