cold weather always makes me want to bake

and by cold i mean it’s 41° here in sunny southwest (sub tropical) florida!

and i’m shivering in my many layers of socks and sweatshirts!

but smelling the yumminess of my dh’s favorite coffee cake helps to warm me up. (not to mention the heat radiating from the oven!)

banana sour cream coffee cake

1 ¼ cup sugar
½ cup chopped pecans
1 tsp ground cinnamon
½ cup butter, softened
2 large eggs
1 cup mashed bananas (2 bananas)
½ cup sour cream
½ tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
¼ tsp salt

stir together ¼ cup sugar, pecans & cinnamon; sprinkle ½ mixture in a well greased bundt pan. beat butter at medium speed until creamy. gradually add remaining cup of sugar. beat 5 to 7 minutes until light & fluffy. add eggs, one at a time, beating just until yellow disappears. add bananas, sour cream & vanilla. beat at low speed just until blended. combine flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt. fold into butter mixture. pour ½ batter into prepared pan. sprinkle with remaining pecan mixture. top with remaining batter. bake until a wooden pick comes out clean, 45 min. @ 350°.
