WALNUT-PEAR COFFEE CAKE

This moist coffee cake goes great with a cup of coffee at breakfast but also makes a delicious snack or dessert. When I bring it to work, it disappears in minutes.
Ingredients:

TOPPING:
1 cup chopped walnuts
1/3 cup brown sugar, packed
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup cold butter

FILLING:
2 medium ripe pears, peeled and sliced
2 teaspoons lemon juice

BASE:
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup chopped walnuts

Instructions:

In a bowl, combine walnuts, brown sugar and cinnamon; set aside.
Place flour in a small bowl; cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Stir in 3/4 cup of nut mixture; set aside for topping.
Set aside remaining nut mixture for filling.
Toss pears with lemon juice; set aside.
In a small mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Beat in vanilla.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; add to creamed mixture alternately with sour cream.
Spread two-thirds of the batter into a greased 9-inch springform pan.
Top with the reserved nut mixture, pears and remaining batter.
Sprinkle with walnuts and reserved topping mixture.
Bake at 350ºF for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes.
Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; remove sides of pan.
Cool for 1 hour before cutting.
