Sour Cream Coffee Cake

I was looking for a nice classic coffee cake to take to some of our neighbors, since they have a very nice habit of bringing over tasty treats for us on occasion. I found this recipe on the King Arthur Flour website and it turned out great! A nice flavor, not overly sweet and it goes perfectly with a nice cup of coffee!

Recipe courtesy of King Arthur Flour


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups King Arthur Unbleached All-Purpose Flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sour cream or yogurt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts
Cream together the butter or margarine, sugar & eggs. In a separate bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, baking soda & salt. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the sour cream or yogurt, stirring after each addition.

Grease and flour a regular-sized (9 1/2-inch) tube pan or bundt-style pan, or a 9 x 9-inch pan. Spread half the batter in the pan & sprinkle with half the topping mixture. Repeat with remaining batter & topping.

Bake the coffeecake in a preheated 350°F oven for 25 to 30 minutes, or until the cake tests done. Cool it for 10 to 15 minutes, then remove it from the pan & serve.
Yield: about 12 generous servings.

I wish I could enjoy coffee cake more often... but I end up making it and giving it away before I get a chance to have a piece myself!
