Sour Cream Pecan Coffee Cake With Maple Icing

This moist, soft coffee cake is delicious, starting with the cake, then swirls of cinnamon streusel with the crunch a some pecans. And then topped with even more of the amazing streusel, it gets even better when you drizzle a maple glaze all over the top. When you are looking for a perfect coffee cake this is the recipe to make, the sour makes a tender cake but the best part of this coffee cake is the streusel and the maple drizzled icing. After I came across this and made this for the first time I took a bite and was like omg, I can eat this everyday. This is great for coffee with your friends, to make for the family, parties, holidays. You cant go wrong with this easy and delicious coffee cake..

You can double this recipe just double all ingredients and use a 13x9 inch baking dish, and that is exactly what I do. You can also use almonds or walnuts if you do not like pecans.
