Christmas Tradition #25

This is my Granny's famous Orange Butter Coffee Cake. We have Christmas Breakfast/Brunch and she always brings it. It melts in your mouth and is so comforting that you could literally eat the whole pan! Here's the receipe if anyone wants to try it this year.

1 cup sugar
½ cup sour cream
2 ¾ - 3 cups flour
1 cup toasted coconut
2 Tbsp. orange rind

Soften yeast in warm water in mixing bowl. Stir in ¼ cup sugar, salt, eggs, sour cream, and 6 Tbsp. butter. Gradually add flour to form stiff dough, beating well after all additions. (For first additions of flour use mixer on medium speed) Cover, let rise in warm place (85-90*) until light and doubles ~ 2 hours.
