Coffee Cake

Hey everybody -
I just got back from Key West... I know, I know, life is so hard...

REMINDER... someone has a birthday coming up. What do you get for the Grandma who's got it all? I'm not entirely sure, but I recently procured an authentic Key Lime Pie recipe... maybe it will make its way into the recipe box!

On to today's recipe. It's Friday (technically), so let's do something sweet to end the week:

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1/2 cup butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 cups flour
1 ts baking soda
1 ts baking powder
