Recipe for a delicious Coffee Cake

For the filling and streusel topping
¼ cup firmly packed light-brown sugar
¼ cup granulated sugar
1 cup toasted pecans, almond or walnut
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup cake flour
4 tablespoons unsalted cold butter cut into bits
½ teaspoon vanilla

For the batter
2 cups cake flour (256 g)
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ½ sticks softened unsalted butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs/beaten lightly
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sour cream
Confectioners' sugar for dusting cake

1. Preheat oven to 350 ° F. Butter and flour a 9-inch springform pan.

2. Make streusel filling and topping: In a food processor, combine the sugars, nuts, cinnamon, salt and nutmeg. Process until nuts are coarsely ground. Set aside ½ cup of mixture for filling. To the remaining topping, add the flour, butter and vanilla. Process till crumbly. Transfer to a bowl.

3. Make the batter: Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt into a bowl. In another bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter. Add the sugar a little at a time and beat until light and fluffy. Add the eggs slowly and the vanilla. Alternately beat in the flour mixture and the sour cream, starting and ending with flour.

4. Transfer one third of the batter to the pan and sprinkle with half the apricot filling. Add half the remaining batter and sprinkle with remaining filling. Add the rest of the batter. Distribute topping evenly over batter. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let cool in the pan, remove sides and transfer to a serving dish. Before serving, dust with confectioners' sugar.

Yields 1 cake.

a) If after 20-30 minutes of baking the top begins to brown, cover with foil.

b) ½ cup of chopped apricots may be added to the reserved ½ mixture of streusel filling.

c) Cake will keep, wrapped in plastic, for up to 4 days.
