 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    2 3/4  cups          all-purpose flour
    2 1/2  teaspoons     baking powder
      1/2  teaspoon      salt
      3/4  cup           butter or margarine
    1 1/4  cups          sugar  -- divided
    3                    eggs
    1 1/2  teaspoons     vanilla extract
    1      cup           sour cream
    2      teaspoon      cinnamon
      1/2  cup           pecans  -- chopped
 
 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
 Combine flour, balking powder, and salt in a small bowl until well
 blended.
 In a large bowl, beat butter and 1 cup of the sugar until creamy and
 light. Beat in eggs, one at a time and vanilla until well blended.
 Beat in flour mixture and sour cream, alternately, beginning and
 ending with the dry ingredients.
 In a small bowl, combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and the cinnamon.
 Spoon about one third of the batter into greased and floured 9 x
 5-inch loaf pan. Sprinkle with one third of the cinnamon mixture.
 Repeat with remaining batter and cinnamon mixture until all is used
 up.
 Sprinkle the top of the bread with pecans, pressing them in slightly
 with your fingers.
 Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in the middle
 comes out clean.
 Cool bread 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack. Remove from pan and
 cool completely on rack.
