Coconut Coffee Cake from Grandma Schlueter

This is a recipe that came from Grandma and we all really like it.  You can make it in a 9×9, 8×8 or round cake pan. This recipe is one that will get handed down.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


1 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup flour

1/2 cup pecans or sliced almonds

Mix together in separate small bowl.

Cream 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter  then add 1 cup sugar in larger bowl.

Beat in 1 cup sour cream and 1 egg.

Slowly add the flour mixture into the egg mixture.

Spray nonstick shortening in pan of your choice. Cover with 1 full cup of coconut, the large unsweetened flakes look great for this.

Pour the batter over the coconut. Sprinkle the batter with a mixture of  2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon or enough to make a thick coating across the pan.

Bake at 350 for 34 -40 minutes or until skewer inserted comes out clean. Check it at 30 minutes to be sure.

Don’t overbake or it will get dry.
