½ pound of butter
1 pound of sugar
2 cups sour cream
¼ tablespoon and ¼ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
½ tablespoon and ½ teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup pecans, chopped
½ cup butter, melted and cooled
Combine topping ingredients and set aside.
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs, sour cream, and vanilla. Sift dry ingredients and gently fold into wet until no big lumps remain. The batter will be lumpy, though.
Layer batter, topping, batter, topping.
Bake at 350ºF for 30-45 minutes approximately, until center is just set.
This recipe can be modified with different toppings (streusels). Fruit can be added with a regular brown sugar streusel.
