Delicious Coffee Cake

I have been in the baking mood lately. Maybe because I get to stand beside the nice warm oven;)  Perfect compliment to a nice cup of tea or coffee.

  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3/4 cup butter-softened
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt
For brown sugar filling you'll need 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2-3/4 cups chopped nuts(I used a combo of walnuts and pecans), and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. 
  1. Make the brown sugar filling and set aside.
  2. Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.  Grease your pan.  I used a 9 X 12 but you could also use a bundt cake pan. 
  3. Beat the sugar, butter, vanilla, and eggs on medium speed for about 2 minutes.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  5. Beat the flour mixture into the wet mixture alternately with the yogurt on a low speed. 
  6. Spread 1/2 of the batter into the pan, sprinkle 1/2 of brown sugar filling and repeat. 
  7. Bake for about an hour. 
  8. Enjoy!
