Pecan Coffee Cake


This recipe comes from my hubby’s grandfather’s friend Vaughn.  She was visiting a few years ago and made this for us when we stopped by for dinner.  Once I ate it I knew I had to have the recipe.  I was especially pleased when I found out how darned easy it is to make.  It’s a dump dump dump mix bake recipe.  Have a box of cake mix in the pantry?  Have some pecan’s in a frost covered bag in the freezer?  Have some leftover sour cream languishing in the back of the fridge?  Done!  Love those!!  It’s sweet, cinnamony, pecany (is that a word?) and very moist.
