As my husband (born in Minnesota) would say "This tastes like an Ole coffee cake". He rarely says Minnesota because it all belongs to Ole.

I think it might be Lena's recipe . As I recall, the only time Ole spent time in the kitchen was to snack on lutefisk at midnight.

I bake a quick coffee cake that is very similar to this recipe. Quick Coffee Cake I think I will switch to your topping and topping method.

I bake it in an 8"x8" pan and it comes out fine. I'll have to give the angel food pan a try.

This sounds wonderful CWS, thanks

All I really need is love, but a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt

cake, coffee, nuts, recipe, sour cream

TNT My Aunt's Coffee Cake [LEFT]This recipe is one that my aunt L served every time we visited. She still makes it (she's 93). My aunt L is an amazing cook. She also is a fantastic golfer (still), bridge player, and knitter. This is my favorite coffee cake--but that is probably because I have so many happy memories that it triggers every time I make it: 1/2 c shortening 3/4 c sugar 1 tsp vanilla 3 eggs, beaten 2 c flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp salt 1 tsp baking soda 1/2 pt. sour cream Topping: 1 c brown sugar 2 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp nutmeg 1/4 tsp cloves 1 c walnuts (or pecans) 6 T butter Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 350. 2. Grease an angel-food cake pan. 3. Cream shortening and sugar, add vanilla and eggs, beat well. 4. Sift dry ingredients together. Add to creamed mixture. 5. Fold in sour cream. 6. Combine topping ingredients (crumbly). 7. Layer 2/3 of the batter in the cake pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the topping on the batter. 8. Cover with remaining batter. 9. Sprinkle the rest of the topping on top. 10. Bake for 35-45 minutes. Serve warm. [/LEFT] 3 stars 1 reviews
