Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Streusel

CAKE:
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
1 1/4 cups sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups sour cream
1 teaspoon vanilla

FOR THE TOPPING:
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/3 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 to 2 tablespoons of melted butter

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time, beating well. Sift flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add the flour mixture alternately with sour cream and vanilla.

Pour into a well-buttered baking pan (8-by-8-inch or 9-by-9 inch with at least 2 inch sides). Combine sugar, cinnamon, flour, nuts, melted butter and sprinkle evenly over the top of the cake. Bake for 45 minutes or until a cake tester comes out clean. Cool, cut into pieces and serve.
