Last Sunday we celebrated my dad’s 88th birthday. Even though his real birthday was February 9th, all of us couldn’t get together for dinner because of everyone’s schedule and the snowy, cold weather. But everyone braved the cold and made sure that we made time for this family gathering. My dad loves my “Sour Cream Raisin Coffee Cake,” so I surprised him and made this for his birthday.

“Sour Cream Raisin Coffee Cake”
3 Large Eggs
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1/2 cup of Vegetable oil
3 cups of all purpose sifted flour
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cream of tarter
1 cup of dairy sour cream
1/2 cup of raisins
1/4 cup of sugar for top of cake before baking
Directions: Oven Temp: 350°F
In a bowl beat the eggs until thick and lemon colored. Gradually add sugar beating until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in the oil. Add the sifted dry ingredients alternately with the sour cream. Add the raisins. Pour into greased and floured pan (9 x 12 x 2) pan. Sprinkle the last 1/4 cup of sugar over top of batter in pan. Bake: for 30 minutes or so depending on if cake tester comes out clean.
Serves: 12 or more depending on how you cut it. Cutting it on a diagonal makes it look like a diamond shape. I didn't have a chance to cut it in a diagonal shape, my family just started to cut it in pieces, as they love this cake!
Till Next Time………
