Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I made and ate this a few weeks ago, but looking at this picture, I’d like to make it and eat it again.  NOW.  This cake + a cup of tea or a cup of coffe or a glass of milk or a glass of wine = breakfast heaven.

This recipe comes from Edna Staebler – if you don’t know who she is, I’ll tell you…another time.  First, make this cake.  Then, we’ll talk.

Dear friends attending the girls weekend in Collingwood this weekend:  I am bringing this cake.  Well, not this one.  A fresh one.  I may ot may not share it with you.
