I have made this coffee cake many times by request! Very moist and delicious. I usually forego the pecans because I don't usually have them on hand and I also use light sour cream instead of regular and can't tell the difference. One problem I have is that the cake always sticks to the pan if I sprinkle the sugar concoction on the bottom first. Even without it, wonderful recipe!
5 stars I make this many times. I use 1/2 cup of blueberries in the cake to change it up sometimes. My family loves this cake. Carol
