In searching through my freezer this morning I discovered, I have nothing, nothing in reserve. No cookie dough, no Rum Cake, no Hot Brown, no meatloaf, zero for emergency food. This makes me nervous. What would I do if there were an unexpected death! If nothing else I'm making and freezing this old favorite coffeecake. At least it's a start.
Sour Cream Coffeecake
1/2 cup butter
Cream together butter and 1 cup sugar in large bowl of mixer. Add eggs, beating well after each, then add sour cream and vanilla. Sift flour, baking powder, and soda together three times; add to batter and mix well.
Spread half the batter in greased 12 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish. Sprinkle with mixture of 1/4 cup sugar, the cinnamon, and raisins. Carefully spread remaining batter over that. A small spatula does this best, without tearing up the layer underneath.
