Ingredients
  1. ¼ lb margarine or butter (1 stick)
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 2 eggs
  4. 2 cups flour
  5. 1 tsp. baking powder
  6. 1 cup sour cream
  7. 1 tsp. baking soda
  8. 1 tsp. vanilla
  9. ½ cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  10. ½ cup dark brown sugar
  11. ½ cup chopped nuts
  12. 1 tsp. cinnamon
  13. Graham cracker crumbs
Optional
  1. 3 tsp. dry instant decaf coffee ground to a powder
  2. butterscotch chips
  3. fresh raspberries
Instructions
  1. Cream butter and sugar.
  2. Beat in eggs until fluffy.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder and baking soda.
  4. Add dry mixture to butter/sugar/eggs.
  5. Add in vanilla, sour cream and chocolate chips.
  6. If adding any other mix-ins, such as butterscotch chips or raspberries, fold in now.
  7. Grease 10 inch tube pan and coat with graham cracker crumbs.
  8. Spoon batter evenly into pan. It will form a shallow layer.
  9. Combine brown sugar, nuts, cinnamon, and decaf coffee
  10. press this mixture into the surface of the batter. I sometimes spoon half the batter, sprinkle half the cinnamon & sugar mixture into the pan, then the rest of the batter and then the last of the topping.
  11. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Notes
  1. This coffee cake also works great baked in muffin or even mini muffin tins! Note that raspberries add more liquid, so if adding raspberries the baking time may be longer.
