  3. In medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder and baking soda; set aside. In large bowl, beat granulated sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Beat in flour mixture alternately with sour cream on low speed.
  4. Spread one-third of the batter in pan; sprinkle with half of the filling. Spoon another one-third of the batter by tablespoonfuls over filling; sprinkle with remaining filling. Spoon remaining batter over filling; spread evenly.

  6. Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir all Powdered Sugar Glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle over cooled coffee cake.
Tips
  • Dripping with the juicy, sweet flavor of blackberries, this glorious coffee cake is a great make-ahead treat. Wrap it tightly, and tuck it away in your freezer for up to 2 months to serve when unexpected guests drop by.
  • For an extra-nutty crunch, sprinkle some chopped toasted pecans over the glazed cake.
