Purple Kitchen Treats

Over the past few years, I have been working on a cookbook. During this time, I took time off to finish my Master's Degree. Now that I have accomplished that, I am working again on my cookbook, slowly but surely.

However, over the past few months, something interesting has happened...I have received multiple requests for baked goods, particularly my cookies. I am also receiving multiple requests for granola. So, with all these requests in mind, I have started to make my cookies for sale, along with my granola.

My official web site is available, but will be undergoing a significant redesign. Be sure to visit my "official" web site at: http://www.susanshonk.com and watch for some exciting changes.

365 in 365 - #103 - Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I had forgotten all about this coffee cake until I found this recipe in my mom's shoebox.  This was a recipe that she would make for holiday morning breakfasts and is simply wonderful.  It is rich with a great moist texture, and very satisfying for anyone with a sweet tooth.

1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 cups sifted flour
2 eggs
1 cup sour cream

1 cup chopped nuts
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 cup sugar

Cream butter and sugar together and add eggs one at a time and beat until incorporated, add the vanilla
Add the sifted dry ingredients alternating with sour cream

Grease a tube pan and pour in half of the batter
Sprinkle with 1/2 of the topping, pour in the remaining batter and sprinkle with the remaining topping

Bake at 350' for approx. 45 minutes

Let cool before serving.

From my purple kitchen to you!
