Classic Sour Cream Coffee Cake

My husband had been asking for and craving Coffee Cake for months when I finally made this. My sister in law gave me a new cookbook for Christmas, Betty Crocker:Baking for Today. After I drooled over all of the pages I settled on this recipe to be the first that I tried. I first made this in January and have made it again too. This is definitely a recipe to make for company or one that you can take into the office.

Classic Sour Cream Coffee Cake

source: Betty Crocker: Baking for Today

1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
Coffee Cake
3 cups Gold Medal® all-purpose or whole wheat flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
3 eggs
1 1/2 cups sour cream
Light Brown Glaze
1/4 cup butter or margarine
2 cups powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 to 2 tablespoons milk

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease 12-cup fluted tube cake pan or 10-inch angel food (tube) cake pan.
2. In small bowl, mix all Filling ingredients; set aside.
3. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, 3/4 cup butter, 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla and the eggs with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream on low speed.
4. Spread 1/3 of the batter (about 2 cups) in pan; sprinkle with 1/3 of the Filling (about 6 tablespoons). Repeat twice.
5. Bake about 1 hour or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan to wire rack. Cool 10 minutes.
6. Meanwhile, in 1 1/2-quart saucepan, heat 1/4 cup butter over medium heat until very light brown; remove from heat. Stir in powdered sugar and 1 teaspoon vanilla. Stir in milk, 1 tablespoon at a time, until glaze is smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle cake with glaze.
