Pecan Streusel Coffee Cake

Posted in : Recipes on by : Sandi Spratt Tags: , , ,


This is a classic traditional sour cream coffee cake. We make it in my family for special occasions like Christmas and Easter when we have guests staying over. My brother and husband love the crumbly topping. It has been suggested that the topping for this delectable cake be doubled or even tripled. Adding to the topping is your call. Let me know in the comments how you like it.  Savor it!
