It's February Now! Let's have breakfast.

One of the best parts about training for a marathon is that sometimes I wake up just starving, and once in a while I feel like I can indulge and make a lovely breakfast.  So no, it wasn't dinner, but I made coffee cake this morning and wanted to share the recipe.  It's from a wedding shower my co-workers threw for me back in '97 -- everyone gave a recipe.  I've changed schools 3 times since, but I'm once again teaching with the person who gave me this recipe -- thanks, Pat!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake
1/4 lb butter
1 c sugar
2 eggs
1 c sour cream
1 tsp vanilla
2 c flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
pinch of salt (I added that -- I just think baked goods need salt -- K)

Cream butter and sugar.  Add eggs one at a time.  Add sour cream, vanilla, mix.  Add flour, baking powder and soda (and salt).  Beat for 5 minutes.  

Mix together some brown sugar and cinnamon.

Put half the batter in a greased tube pan.  Put the sugar & cinnamon mixture in.  Add the rest of the batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 35 - 40 min.

Peeled grapefruit (yum) goes well with this!

Grapefruit? Really?

Isn't that kind of bitter?

Have you tried peeling it (like in the sidebar)? It's so much less bitter without all the skin... I ate 2 whole grapefruit by myself last weekend (and they were big suckers)!
