Happy Fall, Y'all!

Fall is in the air! It's cooler ... and safe to turn on the oven again!
Thought I'd share my favorite coffee cake recipe with you. Bon Appétit!

Wellesley Coffee Cake
1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream
½ teaspoon almond extract 
½ teaspoon vanilla
2 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons sugar
1 cup pecans, chopped
1 teaspoon cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating with each addition.
Add sour cream, vanilla and almond extract; beat well. Combine flour, baking powder and salt. Add to mixture and beat.

In separate bowl, combine sugar, pecans and cinnamon for filling.
Place 1/3 batter in well-greased and floured tube pan. Sprinkle with 3/4 of filling mixture.
Spoon in rest of batter and sprinkle with remaining filling. Bake 1 hour.

Enjoy!

♥ Vicki
