I know what you're having for either dessert or breakfast or maybe just a snack. It's the Hill Family Sour Cream Coffee Cake. Also, I promise this will be my last post for a while.
This cake is what greeted us when we came home from camp or after a grueling endeavor or when my mother got an unexplained urge to break out the baking pans. It's amazing. The recipe, written out by my grandmother on a yellowing index card and now tucked in my mother's cookbook, consists solely of ingredients. No directions, no specifics, just a list. So here's what you do.
(1) Throw all this in a mixer, butter first, flour last.
1/4 lb butter or 1/2 cup shortening
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanill2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
Pinch of salt
1/2 pint sour cream (1 cup)
(2) Pour into baking pan (9x9 ish). You may or may not want to pour half in, cover it with grated chocolate and then pour in the rest. Depends on your fancy.
(3) Mix all this stuff together with a spatula until it forms in to crumbs
1/8 lb butter
1 cup sugar
3-4 tbsp brown sugar
2-3 cup flour
(4) Put those crumbs on top of the cake batter in the pan
(5) Put in the oven at 325*. Bake until light brown on top and knife comes out clean (30 minutes? 45 minutes? I don't know just pay attention).
