Grandma Lee's Sour Cream Coffee Cake

What is it about snow storms that makes one want to bake?  I don't know either.  This is what I baked during yesterday's storm for breakfast this morning.  

Here's the recipe:

 Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1/2 pound butter
1 cup sugar
3 Eggs
2 cups flour
1tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Cream butter and 1 cup of sugar. Sift flour and other dry ingredients and add to creamed butter and sugar.  Mix in sour cream and vanilla until well mixed.  Combine brown and white remaining sugar, cinnamon and nuts.  Pour half of cake mixture into a pan which has been prepared with butter and flour. ( I used a 7 by 11 pan)  Sprinkle on half of sugar and cinnamon mixture.  Pour on remaining cake mix followed by remaining sugar mixture. Bake for 45 to 55 minutes.  I found 45 minutes to be perfect. Enjoy!
