Coffee Cake & Tumors

I have officially handed the baking torch over to AbbySue. This girl, with her mega math skills, can bake me out of the kitchen any day of the week. This was her latest creation....Daddy said, "Best coffee cake ever!" (okay, maybe he's a little bias, but it really was that good.) She made it especially for the staff at Abiqua Animal Clinic, who have welcomed her to observe and assist at their vet clinic here in Silverton. This, of course, is her dream come true. She has watched a number of pets being spayed or neutered...assisted in dental cleanings...and (this week) watched tumors being removed from a dogs face. How in the world they all feel like eating coffee cake after this is beyond me.

AbbySue's Banana Coffee Cake:

1/2 C butter softened
1 1/2 C cane sugar
2 eggs
1 C sour cream
2 C bananas mashed
