Sour Cream Coffee Cake

Jack and I are not big breakfast people. We LOVE eating it. We just love our sleep more. Usually we eat real breakfast food on Saturdays and that's it. (and that's not until about 11am usually) Depending on how many times we hit the snooze button we can usually cram in a bowl of cereal- that's why I love coffee cakes so much! I always forget about them till I make one and remember what a life saver they are for me. I make them the night before and then we can finally eat real breakfast for a few days. Here's one of my very favorite recipes

Sour Cream Coffee Cake

1 c. butter
2 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 c. sour cream
1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/8 tsp. salt

1/3 c. flour
1/2 c. packed brown sugar
3 Tbs. melted butter
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350 and grease 9x13 pan. In a large bowl cream together butter and white sugar until fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time and then stir in the sour cream and vanilla. Mix in flour, baking powder and salt. Spread 1/2 of batter in the prepared pan. Prepare filling: in a medium bowl mix flour, brown sugar, butter and cinnamon. Sprinkle cake batter with 1/2 the filling. Spread second half of batter over the filling and top with remaining filling. Bake 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.



  1. I love sour cream in any baked good, it just makes it so moist!

  2. MMMMMM, sounds yummy. This is a keeper recipe.

  3. Yum! Can't wait to try this tomorrow. We have to call it Sour Cream Hot Chocolate cake though since my kids were worried they'd have to have coffee with it. :)
