Kathryn Vaughn's Bass Akwards Coffee Cake



Preparation:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Grease & flour fluted pan.  Set aside 2/3 cup chopped pecans, 4 table brown sugar, 1 ½  tea Vietnamese Cinnamon
With mixer, combine: 
1 cup softened butter with 1 tea vanilla extract
Mix next 6 dry ingredients:
2 cups King Arthur Flour
½ cup white sugar
1 ½ cups of natural sugar
1 tsp baking soda
1 tspbaking powder
½ tsp sea salt 
Add to butter/vanilla mix.  It will turn into little balls.
Add 2 farm fresh eggs - one at a time - and beat in well. Gradually add 1 cup sour cream.  If needed, use up to two tablespoon of 2% milk to make pourable.
 
Add half batter to pan.  Add half nut mix over batter.  Add rest of batter on top and then add rest of nut mix over the top.  This will make a sweet crunchy bottom when inverted.
Bake 45 to 50 minutes.  Check with sharp knife for doneness.  Pull off any over cooked pecans.  Cool for 10 min before inverting onto parchment papered plate.
Glaze:
Mix 1 cup of 10 x powdered sugar with 4 tsp water,  ½ tsp almond extract & approx 1 tbs  2% milk until desired texture to drizzle over top.
Voila ... get the coffee!
