3 T.flour, heaping

3/4 c. chopped nuts

Cream butter & sugar. Add eggs, beat. Sift flour with dry ingredients, add to creamed mixture. Stir in sour cream & vanilla. Grease an angel food tin or bundt pan. Put part of the streusel on the bottom, then half of the dough, then a layer of streusel, the remaining dough, and then more streusel. (use more streusel on the bottom and the biggest share in the middle because what is on the top mostly falls off. Sprinkle a little on top and press it down into dough. Bake at 350 for 55 min.
