Pecan Coffee Pound Cake

Yields 1 large loaf

1/2 c. sour cream, warmed
3-4 tbsp. instant coffee granules
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 c. chopped pecans

In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugar together until fluffy. Blend in vanilla and eggs.

Stir together flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add half of the dry ingredients in the mixing bowl. Pour in the sour cream and coffee mixture; blend. Add the remaining dry ingredients and blend until just combined.
