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.

And nostalgic.

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.

And.

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.

The best coffee cakes are made with sour cream, and with a good amount of cinnamon sugar. You will not be disappointed with this easy recipe!

Yield: 16 servings

Prep Time:20 minutes

Cook Time:60 to 65 minutes

Total Time:1 hour 20 minutes

Calories per serving: 365

Ingredients:

  • 1 c. unsalted butter, softened
  • 2-3/4 c. sugar, divided
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 T. pure vanilla extract
  • 3 c. all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. kosher salt
  • 2 c. sour cream
  • 2 T. cinnamon

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly spray a 10″ tube pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream butter and 2 cups of the sugar on medium to medium-high speed until light fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Then beat in vanilla.

In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt. Add to the butter and sugar mixture, alternating with sour cream, beating just enough after each addition to keep batter smooth. With a spatula, transfer a third of the batter into prepared tube pan and level it out. In a small bowl, combine cinnamon and remaining 3/4 cup of sugar, and sprinkle a third of this cinnamon sugar mixture over batter in pan. Repeat layers two more times, alternating batter and cinnamon sugar, ending with a layer of cinnamon sugar on top. Bake for 60 to 65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center just comes out clean. Cool for 30 to 45 minutes. Then cut around the pan edges with a knife and remove cake from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
