    Elda Tate's Sour Cream Coffee Cake

    1/2 c. shortening
    3/4 c. sugar
    1 tsp. vanilla
    3 eggs
    2 c. sifted flour
    1 tsp. baking powder
    1/2 tsp. Salt
    1 tsp. baking soda
    1 c. sour cream


    6 tbsp soft butter
    1 c. brown sugar
    2 tsp. cinnamon
    1 c. chopped nuts
    2 tbsp flour

    Start with room temperature eggs, butter, and nuts. Combine the finely chopped walnuts with butter, brown sugar, cinamon, 2 tbsp flour and set the mixture aside. Then sift the dry ingredients together: (flour, salt and baking soda) and set it aside. Next cream the white sugar and shortening together with vanilla and add the eggs one at a time beating well after each egg. Measure the sour cream and begin adding the flour mixture, alternating with the sour cream until both are mixed in well.  Place into a well-greased tube pan half the batter and half the butter/nut/brown sugar mixture, followed by the remaining batter and top off with the nut mixture.

    Bake in the center of a 350 degree oven  for 50 minutes. Cool for 15 minutes on a wire rack and carefully remove the sides of the pan and release cake from bottom of the pan and place on serving platter. (I cut the cake in half and move it that way to avoid fracture. It is very rich!

    This recipe was given to me by an Alliance woman from our former church who often baked it for to take to a grieving family. If you have questions, call me or drop me an .
