Creamy dreamy cinnamon coffeecake

I love cream cheese and figured why not add it to a basic coffeecake recipe to see if it would make the cake even denser and creamier. And WOW!! Yummy.
Next up, I'm going to add cocoa powder to make it chocolate.

1-1/4 c

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Heat oven to 350. Spray a 9" x 13" pan or a bundt pan w/ cooking spray. I used a bundt pan. In bowl, combine first 5 ingredients, mix w/ a fork until crumbly, set aside.
2
In another bowl, beat cream cheese and 1/4 cup brown sugar until smooth. Mix in 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp vanilla. Stir in 1/4 cup pecans. Set aside. In another bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, and baking soda.
3
In another lg bowl, beat remaining 2 sticks butter and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time until combined. Mix in 1 tsp vanilla. Gradually beat in flour mix. Stir in sour cream, mix until well combined. Pour batter into pan. Top batter w/ spoonfuls of cream cheese mix. Using a knife, go up and down the batter to swirl. Sprinkle top w/ crumb mix. Bake 40-45 min, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Check at 40 mins, to make sure it doesn't over cook.
