Grandma wrote a note, "This is nice with your a.m. coffee" and I totally agree. Make this the night before and take a slice along for your morning commute or enjoy while sitting on the porch reading the daily news.


1/2 cup butter, room temp
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour, sifted
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt


1 cup pecans, finely chopped
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon


Cream butter and sugar. Beat eggs, sour cream, and vanilla into a smooth batter. Add sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; mix in well. Pour into a greased 11x7 pan, add topping. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.


Fold in 1/2 to 1 cup of seasonal fruit, my fave is blueberries ;)
