Sour cream coffee cakeFor Mother's Day, I thought I’d share one of our special family recipes. My mother-in-law, Rita’s sour cream coffee cake will be perfect for the next time you’re celebrating a holiday or special occasion with your family.

  2. For the dough, cream together the butter and white sugar in a large mixing bowl
  3. Add the eggs and vanilla
  4. Slowly add the sour cream, flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  5. For the topping, mix together the brown sugar, white sugar, cinnamon and chopped nuts in a separate bowl
  6. Flour a bundt ring pan
  7. Add half of the topping mixture to the pan, then layer half the dough mixture
  8. Add another layer of the topping mixture and end with a top layer of dough
