City Schools Sour Cream Coffeecake



Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour a 10-inch tube pan.


Mix together the all-purpose and cake flours, the baking soda and baking powder in a large bowl.


In a separate bowl, beat the butter with the sugar until fluffy and light. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Add half the flour mixture, mixing just until the flour is blended. Blend in the sour cream, then the remaining flour mixture.


Spread half the batter carefully in the pan. Sprinkle with half the Topping and spread with the remaining batter. Sprinkle the top of the cake with the remaining topping.


Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes.



Mix together the flour, sugar, salt and walnuts. Add the butter in small pieces. Rub the butter in by hand until the mixture is crumbly. Be careful not to over-mix.
