Merry Christmas!

I learned a few Christmas' ago to be sure and have breakfast lined up and ready. I found this recipe in Southern Living about four years ago and I love it because you will always have the ingredients in your pantry and it takes 30 minutes from mixing to out of the oven.

Brown Sugar-Pecan Coffee Cake

2 c. flour
2 c. brown sugar, firmly packed
3/4 c. butter, cubed
1 c. sour cream, I always use lite
1 large egg, lightly beaten, Chloe's brown eggs from her bantham chickens are wonderfully dark in color
1 t. baking soda
3 T. sugar
1 t. cinnamon
1 c. chopped pecans, I never add this

Stir together flour and brown sugar in a large bowl. Cut the butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender or 2 forks until crumbly. Press 2-3/4 c. crumb mixture evenly on the bottom of a lightly greased 13X9 pan. Stir together sour cream, egg and baking soda and add to remaining crumb mixture, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened. Stir together sugar and cinnamon. Pour sour cream mixture over crumb crust in pan and sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar mixture. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes or until wooden pick inserted into center comes out clean.

Wow, this is fabulous cooled right out of the oven. I'll have to pump up the insulin this morning! Chloe declined the coffee cake because of the name I think. She voted for pepperoni and pickles, unbelievable!
