Life is all about seizing the moment and being happy.

Coffee Cake

1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature; 1 cup sugar;  2 eggs;  1 tsp vanilla;  1 cup sour cream;  2 cups all purpose flour;  1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder;  1 tsp baking soda;  1/4 tsp salt.
1/4 cup brown sugar;  1 tbsp all purpose flour;  1tsp osmanthus( 桂花 );  1 cup raise;  1 tbsp unsalted butter, melted.

To Assemble

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Cream butter and sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, stirring well after each addition. Add vanilla and stir in sour cream. In a separate bowl, combine dry ingredients and stir into wet ingredients until just incorporated.
  2. In another bowl, combine all ingredients for topping. Scrape half of the coffee cake batter into a greased 8-inch round cake pan and level. Sprinkle half of the topping over cake and cover with remailing batter. Finish with topping and bake for 35 to 40 minutes, until a tester inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  3. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  4. Yield: 1 8-inch round cake.



     :不错的甜点,松软可口,甜而不腻。在Topping 中,亦可用Cinnamon, 玫瑰酱来代替桂花;也可加些核桃仁。
