TRIED ’N’ TRUE: Serve Pecan Sour Cream Coffee Cake as breakfast appetizer

Last July I was with a friend of mine helping her with her home and dog. I was looking through her cookbooks and I saw this coffee cake recipe. This would be a good recipe for when we have family and friends overnight for Thanksgiving. When they come here they always want biscuits and sausage gravy. While they are waiting for everyone to come for breakfast I serve coffee cake and coffee. I try different flavors and types. This is a little different as the pecans are toasted and ground fine. It is really good. Thanks to Rosa.
