Cousin Mutty is the youngest of my cousins, but we're all old now! She, fortunately, doesn't look it!
When I was digging out recipes this weekend, I found several that were from her mom, my aunt Grace. Mutty asked if I'd found the sour cream coffee cake recipe -- I knew there was a coffee cake of Gracie's, but not sure if it was the sour cream one.
It was! So, as a special birthday greeting, here's Gracie's coffee cake mix, from April 1960. (I won't say how old Mutty was then, but she wasn't five yet.)
Grace’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake (April 1960)
¼ c. butter
1 c. sugar
1 c. sour cream
1 t. vanilla
Add these dry ingredients sifted together:
2 c. flour
2 t. baking powder
1t baking soda
¼ t. salt
1 ¼ c. brown sugar
½ c. chopped nuts
½ t. cinnamon
Layer in a greased angel food or bundt pan: 1/3 mixture on bottom, half of batter, 1/3 mixture in middle, other half of batter and 1/3 on top. (If you like, swirl with a knife.)
Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes.
