Cake Topping To Assemble

1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Add vanilla and stir in sour cream. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir into wet ingredients until just incorporated.

2. In another bowl, combine all ingredients for topping. Scrape half of the coffee cake batter into a greased 8-inch square cake pan and level. Sprinkle half of the topping over cake and cover with remaining batter. Finish with topping and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.

3. Serve warm or at room temperature.

4. Yield: 1 8-inch square cake.
