Coffee Cake

I was in the mood for a treat so I made a half-batch of Mom's coffee cake. Her recipe in turn comes from her grandmother, who Mom says used to make this cake and then dip it in her coffee. We used to get it as a special treat. Here it is ready to go into the oven. This half-recipe includes a stick of butter and a half cup of yogurt (a substitute for sour cream). I topped it with pecan meal, cinnamon, a touch of cardamom, and honey.

And here is a finished slice. It is very rich and moist; dipping it in coffee is redundant but fun anyway. Simple and satisfying...
