Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Ripple
The best coffee cakes are made with sour cream, and with a good amount of cinnamon sugar. This easy-to-make Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Ripple is fantastic!
I have always been fond of coffee cake, and remember Mom making a simple recipe of my grandma’s when I was young. Baked in a 9″ x 13″ pan, with a hefty layer of cinnamon sugar over the top, it was an easy to love breakfast treat.
This past New Year holiday, we had a house-full of family staying with us for the weekend. Our days were filled with fresh snow for the kids to go sledding on the hill at the end of our street, plus hours and hours of playing games and puzzles around the table together.
That cold and snowy weekend, I made this Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Cinnamon Ripple, and now I can’t keep it from my mind. I knew I would be making this recipe for years to come, and that I needed to share it with you!
Sour cream coffee cake baked in a tube pan.
There’s just something about baking with a tube pan that gets me all giddy.
I remember Mom baking many pans of angel food cake, letting it cool inverted on the countertop in our kitchen on the farm. The scene, softly sweet aroma, and excitement for a slice of cake were all happiness inducing.
I sincerely believe that the very best coffee cakes (and banana breads!) involve sour cream.
The sour cream lends tenderness and a beautiful little tang to the flavor of the cake.
There MUST be a good amount of cinnamon sugar.
This sour cream coffee cake recipe, baked in a tall tube pan, allows for ripply layers of cinnamon sugar baked into each and every slice. Plus a hefty sprinkling of cinnamon sugar over the top that gets all crackly-shattery and super amazing when baked. The texture is such a fun contrast to the tenderness of the cake below.
